That was great.

Only a couple of those actually looked painful...

I've ridden some fun single track before. None as grueling as the four hour 25 mile trek threw the nasty trail desertwalker dragged me threw. Can't wait to do it again.

I got bored less than two minutes into it and gave up watching, but "crash" is the wrong word for anything that happened in those first two minutes. The bike got dumped a bunch, but it didn't crash.

That's just the normal clumsy feeling you get when riding on challenging terrain.

You need to be going faster than 5 mph to "crash" a bike.

We ride a lot of similar terrain and it's a lot more difficult than it looks. 5 miles of that stuff is harder that 25 miles of open desert! Looks fun.
