I think that as soon as he knew he was gonna overshoot, he should have pushed back as hard as he could that way he could have landed in a decent place on the landing.

Well I would have to imagine that the 12'' of suspention woulde have scrubbed off alot of the speed in which he impacted the ground. Also the fact that then his legs would take the next round of impact, After his knees and legs bent with impact the next thing to take the hit would be his A$$ on the seat as well as his arms and upper body helping to slow him down. Bad crash no matter how ya read it.... I'll keep my bike in the woods and close to the ground:prof:

I think he was not experienced cause it seems to me that he could've saved it by standing, leaning forward and tapping the rear brake. I know he over shot the landing but maybe, just maybe it wouldn't be so bad. Anyways, hope he recovers soon.

ok first off if anyone thinks he could of almost rode that out your an idiot and have no riding experience. i would love to see what your reaction would be in the air. 12 inches bottoms so dam fast you dont even know its there, better yet go case a jump and see how 12 inches feels. there is no way someone 30 feet up can ride out a flat landing. he made the right choice pretty much. the roll could have been betterly executed but he jumped off and was prepared to roll, the best outcome in that situation.

Brake tap--yea right! Any way you look at it, he was S#it out of luck. He was lucky to just break bones in his lower extremity. With this height and severtiy of impact, he is lucky to avoid the wheelchair. This is why I stay away from big air.

that jump was only about 150 feet! I have seen Chuck over shoot a 200 ft. double in the movie--Chapter 1. He never bailed off the bike, but he pulled high right before he crashed; he walked away from it!!! the suspension did it's work in saiving his legs.
