 Always check for falcons PRIOR to exposing the junk. Because if you wait to check after, it's already too late.

 Couldn't happen to a nicer guy

 Gee definitely has... or had.... Balls.
  • 1 3
 It wasnt a crash. He was trying to falcon punch the bush
  • 1 4
 I was pretty confused about why he pulled his pants down. Was he doing a poo, having a fap, checking his upper legs for cuts or just trying to air out his arse?

 Wow, that was a scary fast crash into the trees.

 That was yesterday's practice run before the Juniors raced. That section of the track where he crashed is very fast with a huge rut that pro-pulses the racers into that small wood section. In person, it's mind boggling the speed they enter that section. Coming out of that rut something caused his frontend to turn because he certainly did not wash it. He went down very very hard and gasping for breath after hitting his testicles so hard. Nice to see he recovered from it and raced a couple hours later. Gee has 9 lives or an army of angels over his shoulder. Btw, at 27sec's in, the guy in the red shirt with the camera on the rock to the right is me.

 did anyone notice the sign "balls for rent" during the live webcast? was pretty much at the beginning and was even mentioned by rob and cunny Smile

now it makes sense^^

 I wish there was a comfortable cup for biking... Hitting my balls is my biggest fear

 right to the fetal position. Total ball shot I feel his pain.

 Once took my stem/steerer painfully close to the balls before now, headset spacer (one of these) hit me with so much pressure on the flanged part of the spacer in the groin that it actually gashed about 2 inches of skin without damaging any of the clothes, could hardly walk for about 2 days after that D:
  • 4 0
 Good point. I'm surprised with all the other protective equipment being developed they haven't thought of a way to both pad or relieve pressure from the nerve but also cub the jewels for situations like these. My first time at a downhill park I had a nice 45 minute break after landing on the back of my seat post after a jump.
  • 6 0
 I used to ride wearing some MMA cup, but it's a bit unconfortable... I started using them after hitting my nuts on a tree, and taking 10 stitches on the sack... Worst situation ever...! Someone should invent some kind of protection for this area... I think every guy would use it!
  • 3 0
 I'm always riding with the Fox Launch padded shorts, they are quiet comfortable and they help a little bit. But I don't think they would have helped at that speed
  • 8 0
 Comfortable cup for biking? How about a comfortable cup for anything. I've never come across one I'd even consider reasonsably comfortable.
  • 5 1
 Was riding with a guy once -- his front tire hung up on a square edge rock strike and he sacked himself on the top tube and ruptured his urethrea. Even bleeding from his junk like he was menstruating, he smashed the trail and had a couple beers at the bottom.
  • 21 6
 Even with a crash like that.... He is STILL whooping the worlds ass! I'm guessing this is a practice run by the look of the start?
  • 10 0
 well the real question now is... are they all there? Wink
  • 2 0
 Haha. I know dude he was having a good feel about wasn't he haha. Good crash tho! It's amazing how the GoPro stays in place! I love how he grabs the 2 trees while being catapulted out of there backwards lol.

 Gee got balls, you know it, but he almost lost them yesterday.
The Accident happened around 11:00 am during last practice, the race started 4 hours later.

I am the dude that at 0:58 screams GEE! as he passes by.
I saw him down at the turn, and ran down to see if he needed help. Gee was crouching in agony, as you might think when your balls get hit with such Fury (pun intended)
The bike seat was broken, and after Gee got a little better he says "I broke off the seat with my balls" at which I replied " You must have big balls". I gave him a sip of my bottled water, and off he went down to the track. I guess he took a good rest before the race.

Stocked to see Gee in the hot seat till the last second. The changing weather orchestrated a beautiful duel between the two top DH riders of the moment, who are first and second. At the split, Smith was only a tenth of a second behind, when he appeared at the last 2 jumps Stevie was charging in the air like a falcon attacking his prey, almost like he wanted to end his race over Gee's head who was waiting on the seat down below.
He did just that.
As Smith crossed the finished line, and the board showed his time, the crowd exploded with screams of joy, releasing the tension for expecting only that from the Flying Canadian, for all that everybody wished for but looked out of reach. What Stevie did in the last half part of the race was incredible, and he deserved to be carried in triumph over the shoulders of so many exulting Canadians. Stevie Smith has the mustache of the flying aces of another time. For sure yesterday he earned his wings, in the day when Gee almost lost his balls.

What a Race!

 I was wondering why gee stopped at berms where Brendog crashed when his tire blew off the rim. Gee's seat was busted and looked like he was in pain grabbing his balls.
  • 10 1
 Nasty lookin' smash.. then the very thorough crown jewels inspection.. then rocks race day to second place, only 0.9s down on Smith!!
  • 23 8
 Only 0.9 seconds down because Stevie rode on a wet track and Gee rode on a dry Wink :p
  • 9 1
 Yeah yeah lol.. was waitin' on that!!

 Stevie rode on a tacky grippy track, Gee on a loose dusty one.... lets play internet bollox talking.

 who knew rock faces get tacky and grippy in the rain Wink
  • 9 2
 Based on the others in the top 5 times, I don't think the track was better in the wet betsie Wink Gee would have been much slower if he qualified higher, his crash in quali was a blessing in disguise for him.

 A kick in the stones for 2nd place.... Gee has had his share of luck this year for sure. The last 2 rounds will be interesting.

 How is the WC right now? I can`t find a place to see the points.

 As Gee is holding his balls in his hands you know he's thinking...."Yep, they're still there...I'm numb as shit and my stomach is in my throat, but yep, they're still there...PHEW!!"

 you know it's coming sometime and when it does you're like "holy shit!" and at the same time "how f-ing lucky to have gone exactly between those two saplings". holy living mother of F is he gifted. that was either a perfect bail or divine intervention.dayuuummm

 I remember arriving at my local track to be greatest by two ambulances and a doctors car in the car park, I found then a 17 year old lad had ripped his dick and balls clean off on a tree stump they where sawing it back to his hip for a blood supply ;( ouch I did not ride that day once I seem the blood at the crash site.

 This is the biggest problem with GoPro. That track didn't look that hard from that angle, but you know it's a WC course so it's crazy

 My mate hit his balls on the stem so hard that he now has one egg and one omelette. This was 20 years ago. Last week we did a complete lap at air voltage. Balls are mental not phisical

 Because his seat hit his testicles so hard it broke. Not even joking. Everyone keeps having a laugh at him without knowing the context of the actual wreck. What happened was fucking crazy. And the fact he raced very shortly after that, as in the same day, is amazing.
