I just cringed thinking about his knee dragging under the bike like that...if he was wearing legit gear, especially leathers with knee pucks he probably would have been injury free.

If you are going to ride like that on purpose, agressive, wear the gear!

I'm not under the impression it was aggressive, just looks like the darker patch of tarmac made him panic.

Nah, he just realized that he was going into that corner way too hot (for his abilities) and grabbed a handful of front brake.

Another example why you need to wear additional knee armor if your going to rock jeans on the street. Shit....any cheap knee guard will better than just denim...

Learning how to ride your bike without panicking is also important..:whistle:

It is indeed the lack of a proper corner which makes me think that, because if it's not the case, the crash then becomes epicly stupid, while it was just normally stupid otherwise.

At least he wasn't wearing shorts ans flip-flops :coolgleamA:

Hope someone offered him TOTW since then.
