    Rider is OK, generally. Consider this a PSA not to land on your front wheel on soft stuff:

    RST M29. Yes, augered in at high velocity. The good news is the frame, carbon handlebar, wheel and components seem undamaged, the fork absorbed all the energy and exploded. I suppose RST could call that a safety feature.
