 Awesome shot deffo deserves POD but i thought i was imagining things but it wasnt pod this morning lol ....hmm whatever still a sick POD. Nice save bet he shit himself though.
  • 9 3

  • 6 1
 what happened to the pod that was up earlier?
  • 2 2
 Good question.. I thought I was loosing my mind. I guess this is the POD-PM. Sweet picture though. I hope his chest feels ok after eating those bars.
  • 0 0
 yea, i was also wondering. i like both thogh

 Dainese is wonderful, didnt feel a thing. Next race run however I ate shit on the same place. I was pushing a bit hard that day - last run of practice i Knocked myself out on the quarry gap...

 rhys-jewell, dude youre probably just pissed because you do this every time you hit a berm because you dont know how to ride in dirt. or at all...

and youre ragging on xdannyx because he called you out? youre saying that his pics are lame, o but wait, the only thing you can do is roll down 8 tiny azz stairs! and then skid out because you dont know how to turn...

classic

 i bet rhys-jewell aint even got a bike the stupid turd

  • 6 1

  • 3 0
 I remember that berm! You can get a load of speed up coming under the bridge. VERY nice save, mucho respect. Hope he got enough speed back up to hit the next hip! reeso - Love Cwmcarn. TOO RIGHT!

  • 1 1
 yo rhys-jewell: GO f*ck YOURSELF. This dude obviously pulled it off. read the f*ckin comments and check out the videos. You are a royal ass f*ck. Haha. anyway massive props to willsoffe. i just about shit my pants looking at it.
  • 2 2
 From my experience a problem like that could have been caused and then just as quickly resolved by having your rebound speed too fast - looks like the front wheel kicked out/jacknifed causing the rider to pitch forward and then forks extended quickly enough to stop rider going over front... of course, I could be completely wrong!
  • 2 0
 My bike was set up OK. More to do with just coming a bit fast into a loose turn...
  • 5 2
 Woho, saved from a face-splash.. Keep up the good riding!
  • 6 2
 pod for sure
  • 3 1
