My MTB Crash - secret video footage revealed

Postby AUbicycles » Sat Nov 03, 2012 11:58 pm

I pride myself on having pretty good bike handling skills and shouldn't have fallen if not for the rock.
One of those downhill turns where you take it more cautiously the second time, because you know how tricky it is, too cautiously that you fail.

The good: Soft landing and no damage to me

The bad: Couldn't clip-out, cleats were stuck and there were 5 MTBers closer behind.

The consequence: Back at the bike hire, the guys grabbed my memory card, put it on their Ipad and watched it over and over again.

The HD version on Vimeo is better.

Nice one Chris. Thanks for sharing.

Now time to lock the thread before your bike skills draw all the attention :wink:
