Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

He crashed like a champ! I would be inclined to post this in a different subforum than SS/FG.

I still think this video rules. I don't normally condone idiots doing idiotic things, but something about this is/was just awesome.

The guy is Dave Watson, I photographed him years ago for one of his sponsors, Ryders Eyewear. At the time he was telling me of some crazy ass plans for wildly steep descents and I thought that he was nuts, but nice. About ten years later I ran into him at the racetrack where he was getting his race licence (car) before heading to Europe where he had landed a gig with a Pro team and was doing the World Cup circuit for Mtb. Down Hill. I think that video is about 4 or 5 years old.

Yeah I remember seeing the picture of that back in the day. It's much more impressive when you just see the dude in the middle of the air over the bikers. If I remember correctly he got pretty messed up from that fall.

Awesome, too bad he crashed. I would have liked to see him do it again and land it.

Mixed feelings, as things can go wrong....but that being said...AWESOME.

reminds of some of the ski movies with Shane, JP and the some of the other brain dead jumping trains, trucks whatever...I use brain dead in a good way...they are immensly entertaining.

I think that clip comes from a DH video... maybe one of the kranked videos, or earthed or something. I think it's fantastic.

I don't know of a better way to break your collarbone and go to jail in the same day

He had a minor tear of the rotator cuff and a bruised groin. The police didn't mind, but did insist that he leave the mountain in an ambulance. He was taken to a hospital 2 hours away and released.
