I was trying to get some mtb footage to send to friends who are unfamiliar with mtb. Here at the Novi tree farm, I was try to catch some air off the hill after the crater, but I misjudged the way the ground falls away again, and I just went over backward. I was able to ride my way out, after the wind was knocked totally out of me. I have some very large bruises today, which for your sake, I am not sharing.
I don't think I have embedded this video correctly, so if anyone could give me a pointer on that, I will correct it. Thanks.
Holy crap, that looked pretty bad. Hope you are OK after that. The one and only time I rode the crater, I got way too much air, and almost ended up like that, but luckily caught it before anything bad happened.

I didn't try much of anything after that, just wanted to make it to the truck! I have tried the following rock garden twice, only making it about 3/4 through each time. I need more speed at the start, or more pedaling in the middle, or I should just bunny hop the whole *beep* thing.
If you hit the back brake it will pull your front end down. Glad you are ok. Big guys can catch air...they just land harder.
