LMAO Thats part of the sport!! If you can take falling and getting hurt, you will be back for another day of riding. So far 3 broken ribs, 2 concussions, 1 broken finger, who knows how many cuts and bruises, pushing 40 and ready to keep on riding.

The video doesn't show the log clearly enough. Is it a log you have to lift over or is the log part of a step down? It's hard to see from the vid what caused him to endo.

its really a small log and a tiny drop after it. I think it was soft sand and too much front brake(dont know why he hit his front brake).
