 "I remember thinking 'Why is there a cliff in front of me?'" Jeesus.

 God Gee is such a good athlete. Why did he have to hit the cliff. Oh well better luck next time

 Someone add that crash to the Top 5 Rampage Crashes video ASAP!
  • + 10
 Not many people would be able to come trought that and walk away from it. DefInitely a top 5 crash!

 Wow... that was a hell of a crash. Not to say that it wasn't a bad crash, but when they showed the couple of slow motion replays, it didnt look AS bad as the full speed video (which looked down right horrific). When they slow it down you can see most of the impact from the actual crash into the cliff was thankfully absorbed by the bike. It looked like he did a good job of getting the front end up which let the back wheel (and the shock) soak up some of that impact.

 Did anyone else see the Virgin Utah sign at 10 Seconds with Cherries on the top of the building?

 He did have his share of bad crashes this year. This was pretty bad too: www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JKZsjf7Vec went down with about 55kph and rolled 30 meters/100 feet!

 Gee is like a rock star in mountain biking. Talented, focused, dedicated, tough as nails - and that's just his balls!.

 Could you believe that he has literally knocked against a cliff !? My heart stalled for a second, everything seemed to go so allright... nasty crash.
  • + 7
 I heard it was a big crash, but not like that! FUUUCK!!!
  • + 1
 that looked so mother fucking painful
[Reply]
  • + 9
 And I thought Gee was one tough s.o.b. BEFORE I watched this.......Pretty cool to see an Elite level downhill racer thats willing to go and tackle the most massive stuff at Rampage. The crashes he has survived would have had me in a pine box.

 How did the new fork get 700+ comments, and this only has 20+? GEE. IS. BOSS. So is Clay...

 Partly because at least half of the comments were by DVO

 that crash at full speed made me physically recoil from the screen. HOLY FUCK!!!!!!
[Reply]
  • + 6
 Wow!!!!! That's one tuff rider.... 2 major wtf crashes this year and walks away....
[Reply]
  • + 5
 That was crazy. I now know why they call him GEE-MAN.... cuz He-Man was already taken?
[Reply]
  • + 2
 Gee really is one hell of a great all around mountain biker. The guy is not only willing go huge at Rampage (finishing 2nd twice), but to also be one of the elite (meaning one of the top 3) mens racers as well is pretty damn impressive. Its easy to think that the other top downhill guys could do the same if they tried but I doubt it. I mean look at that one scene, Mick Hannah (correct me if that wasnt Mick but I think it was) was literally scared to ride his bike there, and he's probably one of the top 10 downhill racers is the world.

 I remember seeing the pictures of the crash on vital and thinking , holy shit. But after the video of it , it really puts the whole thing in perspective. He went into the cliff with such speed I'm surprised that he got away with it. Mad props.
[Reply]
  • + 3
 I'm totally blown away by that crash. I just don't understand what he is made of. Makes me proud to ride a bike with his name on it for sure. Thanks Gee.
[Reply]

 Insane slam... Just insane. It's pretty obvious that Gee's physical condition (and sheer luck) saved his life, but how many fit people could honestly take that kind of a wreck and walk away? What an animal. The G man is made of steel.
[Reply]

 That crash and then to get up must admit gee is not a person who admits defeat very quickly always Trying harder go Gee
[Reply]

 Not like a pro racer..
But if a pro rider can clear a huge gap, then i can do that to. everybody can do it.
You have to really want it.

It is one off the things that really motivate me.
Just one big gap or drop is enough Smile for "now"..
