    Do you like watching crashes????

    We here's a little video of me crashing during a race. The guy in front of me actually had a video camera on the back of his helmet hoping to get a little action. Boy did he get what he came for. I'm ok. Still a little bruised up but nothings broken and i was actually able to finish the race although not in the top 10 as i was shooting for.
    follow the link:

    i'm at the bottom right labled "Rider 962 followed my bad line!"
    right click on "movie 2 mg" and save to your hd.
    enjoy and tell me what you think

    Ouch!

    That's an interesting view looking back like that, rather than a forward view. Looks like you took a bit of a roll on the rocks. Hope you are OK.

    The one wth the guy without enough speed on the ramp was the best one. Laugh? I nearly shat.

    Oh man that must have hurt!! Too bad he didn't make it. It would have been impressive. Helps to have a delivery truck to gain the speed. Never could do that on a BMX with one speed. Definately lives dangerously.

    OMG, what a site. Love that guy with the ramp- I hope he's not dead or crippled, yikes. Loved the Jonah endoing over the rocks- yeah, well, it was a sheer drop, whaddya expect? Really entertaining, as long as no one ended up on the permanent disabled list, yikes.

    Yeah, I think it probably had the same effect on him.

    Emergency! Get Randy Mantooth!

    Hey Ton, I don't care about you so much. How's the bike? j/k

    I'd hate to be caught on film doing some of the stupid things I've done!

    Holy Crap! In his frist Sport race, Wow!!!!

    I finally had a good race 2 weeks before in waco, i got 8th. could have done better but that's what i got. (if you were there i was almost the last guy in to the woods but started with my hands in the air like i had just won)
    I was shooting for a top 5 and had a realistic shot at it but biffed. I still got 20th which is almost the top 50%.

    comfort was pretty cool but not my best race i got 4th in the TT and was in the top five when i got LOST, of all freaking things, when i finally found my way back on the course i finished 19 or 20 or something. gosh dog i was mad. I also almost had a head on collision with a group of sport riders that took a wrong turn.
