Thats Paul. I was the first person to buy a shot from him when he started. He used to be much further down the hill.
He sometimes sits a few turns down in the morning then moves up to that switchback later in the day.

I have ridden that road hundreds of times in the last 10 years - there is no small bump anywhere in there. Many of the guys that crash are showing off for the crowd of people up there on sundays and riding above their abilities.
You can see lots of other video of people going through there much faster without issue.

The full blown asshattery that goes on up there on the weekends (as well as Ageles Crest) has prompted substantial police presence increase and as a result of all of the above I rarely go up there anymore....
We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.
