Video: Incredible Triple Nose Bonk Save from the Windrock Pro GRT

Mar 11, 2019
by James Smurthwaite  

Norco's newest signing, Elliot Jamieson, made an instant impression this weekend with this incredible triple nose bonk save at the Windrock Pro GRT. Jamieson was flying through the whoops, got bucked forward but managed to hold on as he bonked the last three whoops then rode away.

 If it were Gwin they wouldn't call it a save but rather a move

 Still can't believe it was intentional?

 the nose bonks were probably what kept him from going over the bars. upward force to counteract his forward and down momentum.

 @Lastpikd: Keeping working on those physics. Say it with me: Free Body Diagram. Lots of em

 @Lastpikd: Yes, you can see it in slow mo. After that kicking bump he could keep that nosebonk where it belongs.

 It would be great if pink bike could get the original bit of video so that I can watch the clip over and over again with dealing with instagram. Or adjust the setting so there is not the forced shunt onto their platform.

 Must've been practicing on his hardtail beforehand.

 Norco: Here's your bike, Elliot. We worked on perfecting the frame design for the past 4 years.
Elliot: Y tho?

 Looks like the inverse of @JeffWeed ... between the two of them maybe one set of F/R tires can be worn out. Like the old Jack Spratt nursery rhyme or something... Razz

 Looks like his strength training and conditioning are paying off. Lucky to hold that one together.

 Man, unless you jump the lot how to ride such closely spaced humps? Would you be aiming to ride the peaks on the back wheel?

 I just don't think that was the fastest line.

 Now there's a video that would benefit from slow-mo.
