That was a strange place to eat it... right after the logs its pretty much that berm... don't remember anything that could've whipped his rear out like that.

Ah, after I full screen'd it I saw.

I did the same thing on a lower section of Livewire on Saturday too.. stripped some of the pedal threads in my cranks. :/ Didn't notice until this morning when I got on board and my pedal felt funny.

wow you went down hard! i'll be more careful there for sure!

you okay?
Yes, I'm OK. Sore wrist, but don't think it's broken. Yes, I'm pretty lucky I was slowing down for the berm and rolled out a bit when I ate it.

But yes, I'll be more careful to keep my pedals level before going into that berm. My new bike has a lower BB and there's some rocks poking up just before that berm on the left.

Looked like a nice leisurely ride down Livewire... I've found that's when I tend to make the most mistakes riding, when I just "chill" rather than full-on attack a trail. You probably should have been up off the seat more, with your pedals level.

Think he was prepping to enter the berm, thus the outside pedal went down... just a little too early so it got caught.

There were big gusts that kicked up some dust storms, but overall it was nice this weekend. Just cold on the lifts.

dude, i hope your wrist is feeling better. aside from the crash, it was a good time ridin' and chillin' with ya' saturday!

video viewers: it may be a little tough to see in the video, but there's a few embedded rocks sticking out of the ground exactly where there's a good line into the berm.
