It was definitely a nasty spill. I was not real sure what happened, it was almost like he lost sight of his line or something went wrong at the lip of the big drop... I was caught off guard, but still managed to get a few shots off.

OMG! Wow... This might be an obvious question, but is this downhill? Do women ride these same types of races too?

Yep. Why else would that guy be dropping in up top with all his teammates crashing at the bottom of the hill?

No, this is not downhill. This is extreme freeride.

Downhill riding and racing involves a bit more contact with the ground, wheels down
