That guy that actually wrecked. He rides in my city. He is a very good stunt rider. Not a zip around the streets kinda guy, but just a one wheel on the ground at all times kinda guy.

Can you see why he crashed? That pavement was missing where he started to drop a knee and turn...

Suckssss

Read the description blurb about comment approval.

Notice how there are not many comments. Hahaha.

You can tell he didn't pee rude a road to know where the dangers are.

If I ride a road I don't know I am not going to ride hard.



I live the comment asking him how he crashed.


Well from the video, his inability to look through a corner and determine entry speed was the major factor, followed by his inability to react to massive gouge in the road.

Gouges are so unpredictable due to the direction, depth and slope of them. Riding a mail bike everyday they can cause the front to keep grip but force the front wheel on an un natural line forcing the weight to move forward.

But this guys gear.. Wth..

I still get those 'oh shit' moments.... The day I don't, is the day I stop riding.

No it was not because of the pavement it was because he doesnt know throttle control. Listen to the RPM he tried to give to much at to much lean losing control of the rear wheel. He may be able to pop a wheelie but that does not make a good rider.
