I may have over-braked a little which caused the front wheel to wash out. It was also really loose though, so maybe I won the lottery with my line "choice". I was really winded by that point too, I might have just given up and let the bike go. I'd been fighting my way through stuff like what was shown on the video for almost half an hour.

I forgot to mention that I "discovered" some Cholla a little before I turned the camera on. That shit is vicious! I smacked into a branch with my handguard and got a nice little bulb stuck right below the knuckle protection on my gloves. It hurt like hell so I immediately tried to grab it and pull it out. Bad move! Now I know why they call it "jumping" cholla... you'll be jumping around trying to grab it where there are no needles.
