 im scared! i thought mtx's were pretty strong stuff - if thats what they were
  • + 16
 good enough rig? did you see how far he overshot the tranny? by a good twenty feet! if you look how he should have hit it, it would have only been maybe ten feet down. and i think those were single tracks.
  • + 22
 yea those were single tracks.....pause it at 29.9 and you can see it clear! atleast the good news is, he leaned how to cartwheel
  • + 6

 Well kids, that's one way to taco your rim

 devin 56 i live in williams Lake and i ride that trial almost every day all summer and it is a 40 foot gap

 nobody inspects their rims often or thoroughly enough... I had something kinda like that happen to me once, I was rippin down a trail on my previous 8 inch dh rig (at least as fast as our random hero from the video) and I got just a little bit of air(less than 12 inches off the ground). My front tire then landed on a small, and smooth rock, my bike stopped I kept going, head first like superman style... I was trying to figure out why I crashed as I went back to my bike and found out why when I saw my rim looked like PAC-MAN waca waca waca.... it broke at the weld... when a rim wants to break its going to break, but either way you probably shouldn't be gapping a jump to flat ground on a hardtail.

 It's a 30 footer.....and sketchy at that. The "landing" is all worn down/flat. I've hit it a few times on my Sunday and it's an impact!!

 The back story.....

John (Wellburn, the hero of the story), hit it once and blew his foot off the pedal so went back again. If you watch close, you'll see him land back wheel first and the front wheel slams extra hard into the landing bumps. THAT'S what caused the failure.

All he got was a bit of a raspberry on his lip where he smacked it into his fullface. Which meant that he didn't get any action that night, but that's another story.

It's on a trail called Aflo Daddy in Williams Lake. Wicked line, hit it up first chance you get.

 I could ride Aflo Daddy all day.

 wow i would be piss if he borrowed my bike, nice flips,p.s. next time do them in the air it won't hurt much and the bike won't break. Keep on ridin dude, that was kowabunga Pimp

  • + 1
 LOL
  • + 1
 for all u guys talking about never buying single tracks and that it wasnt his fault he crashed he should have had his spokes tightened i would have checked my spokes before hitting something big like that Smile
  • + 1
 not just that but also check the weld/seam and look for hairline cracks...
  • + 1
 fucking awesome that rider hit that at that speed on a hardtail!....shit,they are single tracks are they,just got a 07 norco manik,they got them,but i dont think i'll be doing shit quite like that!!
  • + 0
 lol, im now what that guy just went through, i did that to both my single tracks at the same time... did almost the same kinda crash except i hit my face off my handle bars to.... with a bucket helmet... now i run 729's... beasts...
  • + 1
 yea both my singles did the same shit, just bam and they were both history lol. but yea props for hitting that gap with a hardtail AND singletracks Big Grin

 The best part is that it's not his bike. His was already wrecked so he borrowed this one.
  • + 1
 at 39 it looks like he smashed his rim before he cartwheeled, and after playing around the 39 second spot it seems as if he wanted the bike to suck him, but then it says no and puts its seat tube up his ass, really!
  • + 2
 hes on the same bike as i have Smile
  • + 2
 Jeeeeeeze! Thats insane. LOL! That musta hurt tho. Razz
  • + 0
 If you watch his for it looks the rebound is what destroys the wheel. Im sure the impact helped but the fork blows the shit out if the spokes.
  • + 2
 TACO TIME!!!!!!!!!!! ahahahah
