I like the "spotting the landing" shot (4th) one best. What's that, about 8 feet up? Looks like you landed well an missed all the rock face. Well done.

I hope you and the bike are OK. I hate when that happens. I had an indo. about a month ago while coming off a bridge that was over a down tree. It cracked my helmet in three places. Not even a scratch or ding on the bike.

Did ya slip and grab the front brake? I did that once after bunny-ing a log. ended up about 15 feet forward on the ground. So now I keep my finger off the brake when jumping ;)

Yeah, from the sequence of pictures it is REALLY hard to see how you ended up going over the bars from there?! Pic 3 seems all fine and then pic 4 appears as if someone stuck a metal rod through your spokes...

Anyways, glad you are ok from the fall. These things happen, its all part of riding I guess:)

Kinda hard to tell but your riding position looks a bit too forward for that steep downhill part and add a bit of front brake, not sure the speed you're going at and bingo! Endo city. Happy to hear your ok..

might have gotten buck forward a bit after the first little "drop" as it does look like i am too far forward....pretty sure i didn;t hit the front brake though...ah well...good times
