Falling Wade?

Did anyone see the vid. clip of Simmons flipping off that drop at the rampage? Saw it on fox news, it was nasty looking. I can't believe he got up and waved. If you want to know how core Mtb is watch some idiot on the news try to report on something like the rampage. NO clue.

I don't think Wade Simmons is an idiot. You kind of need to know your physics to pull the big stuff.

Fer sure, Simmons is the bomb. You should have seen that news guy try to report on a mtb event . If you don't ride you don't understand the passion for riding.
