Let's see them everyone. Lidarman needs some cheering up, and what could possibly be more effective at cheering someone up than the misfortune of others.:)

I'll start

Schweet!

Now that's a perfect capture of that sick moment when you realize you are going over the top. I've been there recently, and it sucks every time. Still got the scabs on my shins!

I was there yesterday. Flying around a corner, small log in the way. Bunny hop, clear, land, somehow grab front brake, eat dirt. Its an interesting feeling, knowing that you will be hitting the ground in less than a second, having time to thingk "this is gonna hurt" but yet not enough time to do anything about it.

Mine's not a dramatic as some of these, but it was January, and that water was COLD, and I didn't have anything to change into and we were a LONG way from the trailhead.

Luckily I saved it and only got one foot wet. :thumbsup:

I think that is Dan's famous grimace describing his thoughts
"I think I need to leap over my handlebars now or I'm toast!"

He almost did too, but the landing was followed by another two foot drop off at the end of that rock so no dice.

Could be that's a "Oh Sh!t grimace". ...

Check my left hand, squeezing the brake despite my brain screaming "Let go of the brake!!!" I had no business being on the DH course and Angel Fire, anyway. IIRC, Kristian gets photo credit.
