Do You Holler When You're...GOING DOWN?

Recommended Posts

Let's see, I have three.

1. The throaty UHHHHHHH when it happens so fast and I didn't expect to go down.

2. The Ooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhh sssshhhhiiitttttttttttttttt! When you can see it coming.

3. Then there's the DAMN! followed by a hefty loud laugh when I thought I was going to eat it but saved it.

Yep, done all 3.

yea I'll say something when I'm going down...usually just an "oh shit" that isnt very loud. Occassionally I'll put on a show after I'm down. Did it once at pine ridge when I tangled with a guy fighting for 1st place. I was a lil pissed at the time... :applause:

i never yell anything when i'm in the air because my brain is on overload trying to figure everything out. I do remember many times thinking, "this is gonna hurt" and thats the only part i don't like about motocross, the feeling you get when you know your about to eat it bad. once on the ground and after i get air back in my lungs, then i swear and look for my bike to get going again.

i talk to myself a lot on the track. i try to encourage myself to ride better and by hearing the same thing over and over again i learn new techniques. and YES do i yell if i know i screwed up and i'm ganna hit the ground. usually a few profanities here and there. it helps relieve frustration for me.

Once. MXJunky was in third gear on a '99 KX250, hammerin' this section of small whoops, and the throttle stuck. MXJunky launched the following berm, cased it on a fence, and endoed, doing a complete flip in the air prior to landing on his back. While MXJunky was skidding along the ground on his back (for about 15 feet), he was screaming like a little bitch. That was the scariest crash MXJunky has been involved in.

If I know it is going to be a bad crash, I will say a few choice words.

I was just talking to my buddy about this the other day! I found myself almost "going down" a couple times and each time I made wierd grunting noises or yelled something lol...caught me kinda off guard. But now I'm going to start hollaring good things like "get your butt off the seat!" hehe..

I usually don't say much of anything when I go down. Nowdays, I don't really ever crash jumping, its usually from pushing too hard in a corner and not having the traction, or hopping the berm with my front tire. I usally utter "oh Shit" or something like that when casing a big jump

First of all there is a constant conversation going on in my helmet. I ride better that way. Especially when I yell at myself to "get on the f'n throttle!!!" or "get off the f'n brakes and turn!" When I am really nervous or displaced, I don't talk to myself and then I ride poorly.....

As far as when I crash, I think I say something to the effect of "uh-oh" when I see it coming. Otherwise I know I make grunting noises just to let the air out. I get up, make sure I didn't fill my shorts with anything. Pick up the bike (usually laughing - even with injury - because I did something REALLY stupid to get me on the ground in the first place) and move on. The only time I cuss when I crash is when someone else takes me out. And I am usually mad at myself for not avoiding the crash. Ususally...there have been times that was not the case.:thumbsup:
