 Was anyone else secretly hoping the person riding the skinny would fall into the pond, only to come away massively disappointed?

 In his defense ; I believe I know that jump line, Its starts out great but then seems like they tried to stuff more jumps in near the end of the track and gave up. What he bailed on is a large mound with no real landing, your forced to scrub it but at the speed you come in at and the fact the the landing has two directions coming out of it, your eyes look one way, your body goes the other and your brain lags as it does know which of the two to believe.

 @enduroelite: It does however look like he could have just stayed on the bike and ride away hah

 Also in his defense, I wouldn’t say the technique is bad at all. Looks like he got hung up on something as well as it looks like a very steep blind landing.

 3:18 - "e-bikers are generally less-skilled than their traditional bike riding counterparts." -Specialized

 EMTBS in general hold a much higher risk of crashing for less-skilled riders if said rider has not learned the skills of handling a bike at high speeds, not to mention a much heavier bike than a normal non electric mountain bike.

 Pinkbike needs to do a version called Wrecked Wednesdays of just bikes getting absolutely clapped and broken. Also idk what the guy was doing at 1:36? Was he attempting a 360 or a tailwhip?

 I just spent a whole day riding that jump line last weekend, thankfully it's an easy road pedal access and lots of people wear full faces. That was definitely the most painful crash of the vid
