 Dude was scared. You could tell by body language. Locking up the brakes was a pretty obvious indicator.

 He was actually looking good until he locked both wheels up mid air for landing. That model obviously doesn't come with ABS.

 Yeah, but what bike is he riding?Big Grin D I really like that frame, but i cant decide whether an old stumpjumper, or something else.

 It *was* a 2009 FSR XC Pro 120mm travel, cracking frame. whacked a 150mm fork on it and it held up to the stress of that. Got rid of it now for a trek remedy but am slightly regretting it hah.

 I ride this trail every week, never seen anyone manage to do that, but it's always been in the back of my mind that one day it might happen!

 Not to mention the number of times I have smacked my handlebars with my full face.... Can't imagine ever not wearing one.

 This was mid way through a ~25 mile XC ride, a full face would be hell

 well at least you would have your teeth....

 He does have his teeth, he just had a few minutes lying down then continued with the ride just fine.

 It was a hypothetical commenting on the pros and cons of the uses of a full face.

 He locked both wheels in the air so they weren't rolling when he landed.
