 I think you deserve to eat it if you dare go out wearing clothes like that. He's probably being chased by the fashion police!!

 he's not even wearing clips open your eyes abit and you can see he isn't wearing any
  • + 4
 how about you open your eyes bro, he is wearing clips... Google search 5.10 Minnar and read the comments before you
  • - 2
 hey harmsie7 makes a very valid and intelligent point. you can clearly see from the links "exact" posted he was not clipped in. ( try the second link because i know your intelligence is not one of your many strong attributes)
  • + 1
 hes not clipped in...thats just how good 510s are.
  • + 0
 there so good they just stay on the pedals when the guy is upside down... this doesn't happen unless your clipped in.

 GUYS, He landed it...I think.

 HAHA CLIP IN PEDDLES

 View it upside down and it looks like he's doing some sort of MX trick.

 And you..... Stop!!! Hammertime!

 FLAT PEDALS FTW!

 Did the dude get any serious injuries then? I would love to know. When you look at the sequence shots it looks absolutely savage. Nevermind the neck, his whole spine is bent the wrong way, his heels and hitting the back of his lid. Such a bad crash, i hope he walked away!
  • + 1
 at first i was like why is pod so sick (not the good kind) and twisted this time? then i saw the sequence of photos. if i had any doughts about neck braces, this just dispelled them.
  • + 4
 The bike is riding him now
  • + 2
 nothing is wrong here... The bike is riding the man! The man doesn't have any wheels so they're crawling down... Moreover, the audience are stoked! just look at them! see...
  • + 3
 That's why clips are never friendly.
  • - 2
 actually clips usually release under a decent force.... the clips didn't cause the accident, and he would be just as bad off with flats.
  • + 1
 Hes just reachin out for the donuts that are out of shot.... Got a lil bit distracted by the chocolate sprinkled one, so he had to go for it.
  • + 1
 on the bright side, he got a chance to feel wat its like to hav the new fox inverted fork!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • + 3
 He sees a coin on the ground
  • + 1
 "hey, whats that shini... OH SHIT!!!!"
  • + 2
 I'm not sure bought this but I don't think his forks are going to absorb much of that impact
  • + 1
 If the bike crosses the finish but you don't, is that still a win?



*oops - that was meant for thurman's post
  • + 1
 I don't know why so many are harshing on clipped in pedals. They didn't cause the crash, and at that rate in the rocks, flats weren't going to save his grill.
  • + 1
 I would say the last thing going through this guys mind is awwww shit this blows. But by the looks of it the last thing on his mind is going to be his rear tire...
  • + 2
 Depois de tantas fotos exlentes que tens! conseguiste um POD penso que foi o 1º Big Grin parabens!

 50 million points if he somehow flipped back onto his bike and kept going!! Suicide superman flip!

 broken collarbone anyone?
  • + 4
 No he's fine , after he crashed he got up and nothing was broken . i saw him crashing. if it wasn't the leatt brace . he would have hurt himself pretty bad.
  • + 1
 How did you get the same picture from two different angles?? Multiple cameras setup or two photographers working for mtbfoto?
  • + 1
 Looking at the other pictures, he certainly scorpioned pretty badly, but he seems to have missed the rocks entirely. Certainly could have been a lot worse.
  • + 1
 When he fall he looked like a scorpion, but then he said he was ok he didn't even went to the ambulance
  • + 1
 anyone else see spiderman?
  • + 1
 BS if you were running flats it wouldve done the same thing
  • + 1
 I think the guy is jewish and he saw a nickle
  • - 2
 I think everyone seen enough crashes to last 10 lifetimes. Plus those are not clips, five tens with flats and his left foot way off the pedal. Def wrist/shoulder damage, hope he alright.
  • + 2
 Wrong. You shoulda checked the other pics from the sequence which are linked above. Picture 2 clearly shows (as does their website) that 5.10 makes those shoes in SPD.

I'd say that is one of the most informative sequences I've seen in a while. I've been wondering what a scorpion while clipped in would look like. I don't think his foot actually frees itself from the pedal until AFTER the last pic. That one shows the foot/pedal angle looking like it might pop the foot free. Or pop his foot off!

Besides, seen enough crashes? We can never see enough of OTHER people crashing!
Hope he is okay, best wishes for a speedy recovery.
