You can tell the girl knows how to ride, it was just one of those times out of 100 that falling where you cannot plant a foot happens. That time it was in a tricky rock section and on a tall bike.

Standing is not a default position, but only another "tool" to be used from a dirt bikers tool chest. She was not out of position considering the small amount momentum that she had. Just too bad the guy was not higher up the hill to help spot better in that trouble area.
