yeah i read the comments under it... he was just sore and the thing that cracked:

"somehow he walked away from that. The Noise is the top piece of timber on the landing retainer breaking."

If he had properly executed the "BikerFox Hop" or the "BikerFox Crash" as illustrated on my website, he might have been able to land on his feet.
