 Thanks everyone, I'm ok. Pretty beaten up, but happy to be alive. Had knee surgery and back home now. tibial plateau fracture.

Wear your helmets kids.

 May I ask how you managed to fracture your tibia? it almost seemed like the full brunt of the fall would have been on your collarbone or shoulder blade

 I have never seen more style in a crash before.

 @Steezwhip: Hi. My knee hit into the nosepiece of my helmet. This broke my tibial plateau and my sternum as the helmet pushed against my chest.

 @EmmersonWilken: wow, that sounds brutal. I hope you're all healed up by now, and back to killing it on a bike

 Is it super obvious to you at some point that the trick is blown and you need to ditch the bike and try and preserve yourself? Or how does it work?

I've never flipped bikes, but I'm always curious how the guys know when to bail as the crashes always look so scary!

Happy you're OK

 Hey dude. Once you've done a bunch of flips. You just know. The mind works it out. This one just felt crap so decided to get out.

 Crazy to see how when he flopped "open" off his bike it stalled the rotation. Physics YO!
