Grrrr... broken derailliuer... video inside

Okay, if you fall and get up and try something else.. well that's dumb. Add super slick wet slippry rain and mud.. that's dumber... This video was a trail I've ridden a hundred times and never have any problems at all.. get out the camera... and well, now we have a new situation!

No photos yet... but you can see on the second fall when the drivetrain hooks on the end of the bridge... then I land on it!

Oh well... At least we got them on tape!

For those who have not seen it, here is Helmet Cam of the first fall on another day. That part of the trail is called Joe-Job, cuz I was the first to really crash I guess... great eh?

Anyway, here is the Helmet cam crash on Joe-Job last year. I'm riding a 2001 Bullit in this one:

Glad to see I'm not the only one that grabs for trees when I fall.

Heh.. I broke my collarbone last October on the second last weekend of DH for the season.. really took a chunk out of my fall riding, and made my winter riding really suck... but, I'd rather break it then than in the Summer!
