Tumble off road in the Pyrenees

At 4.40 into the video watch me take a big tumble, then on the second try up the hill the bike lands on my foot. sorry for the bad language.

Some of may videos can only be watched on a PC (I don't know why )

I think you just needed bigger bikes.

Our other rider was on a DR 400 and wouldn't even attempt it. If we hadn't had all our camping gear, water, food and cans of beer we may have made it, but what it has done is put me off trail riding by myself on the big KTM because without the other 2 I never would have got the bike off me without doing some serous damage to my leg

It's obvious to everyone that your technique is ALL WRONG! You should always drink the beer at the BOTTOM OF THE HILL!!!

Watching this just made me realize that when one of the riders at Death Valley had a similar foot pinning incident (and broke his foot) he didn't cuss once.
