Bad Crash at Jackson Hole Resort

He doesn't remember talking or even riding that day. It's not me, it's my buddy. As seen on "When Vacation Attacks" on the Travel Channel.

 You know, as far as crashes go, that was pretty rough. Razz You really had that knocked out of you, didn't you? Hope you weren't too badly wounded. Smile tup

Another thing, its nice to see the biking community still so tightly knit that someone will stop, help you up and sit with you till you're up and running again. Gotta appreciate folk like that. Smile

 I'm just glad that he's ok, and that I didn't hit him. It would have been bad for both of us. These jumps can be deceiving, send it too far and you've got a long way to come down out of the sky. Twice in one week, scary place to fall/find someone hurt. Stoked to see the footage from the run, and it's re-assuring to know that he wasn't down for too long until I came by. Thanks everyone for the kind words about stopping to help, you'd be surprised at how many people fly by without even touching the brakes when someone's down.

 It is rather surprising. I over rotated my ankle 1/4th the ways down at a bike park. Everyone was just starring at me hike up with the bike and gimp of a foot, but hey, that's Germany for ya lol

When you just tossed your bike into the bush like "it's go time". I loled

 Nice flow minus the crash.

Props to your buddy and the smarts to purchase/wear a neck brace.

 Neck braces have saved us many times, and they look cool. Double win.

 I've done that a few times before, no fun. Onetime my visor took a chunk of dirt out of the trail so that was pretty cool.

 This is in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. I think Austin may have some free ride, I'm not sure though. It's in texas's hill country so you may be in luck.

 This wasn't me... Luckily. My buddy had my helmet cam for the last run. He just got a concussion and some scrapes, nothing too bad.
