BENT rim

Recommended Posts

Week ago Sunday in Wisconsin at Aztalan race... I was in 3rd place until I came up a little bit short and crossed up on a 75' jump... Walked away from it, to the surprise of everyone watching.

Ever seen a rim like this?

It WAS an excel rim with bulldog spokes....

vid :banghead:

I've seen worse, when Pastrana jumped off a cliff. You're lucky you didn't get hurt.

Were you at the back of the plataue? I only got second hand info of what happened when I landed, severe body tumbling is what I was told.

918 in 250b, you saw it?

Yeah i was walking to get a hot dog and i was looking over.. Damn dude. That jump ended my dads riding. Shattered femur broken other femur 2 broken ribs broken wrist broken foot in 3 places and broken colorbone..

I always dread the back section its my worst part and my buddies always do shitty back there. I broke my femur on the second one with a shattered Shoei helmet. Well of course you didnt see me but i was in a black seek sweater and jeans with a fmf hat... damn that was a gnarley fall dude.. you there alot???

Link works... i just posted the link when i wrote the post, so might not work for some yet? it's just a vid of my rim, not the actual crash....

I rode azzie for 2 years as a member, now I live in Michigan, come back for a couple races a year... Pretty funny, I was talking smack about how easy that jump was to a few of my buddies and giving them $hit about not hitting it... I won't do that again!

Jumps just a squared off 75-80 table top. It's just really tall (15' or so), so when you come up short it's one heck of a bounce off the backside... Sorry, no pics off hand.
