hmm, looks like hes coming towards the camera, not away. soooooo, unless he has a backwards bike, he's high sided it, and this is the post-crash sliding action shot.

unless he did in fact low-side, and the bike has already spun 180 degress around... then you're right. dunno.

He is coming towards the camera and turning to the right. The right side of the bike is lower than the left. He crashes and the bike is on the right side sliding.

A low side puts the bike on it's right side in this case.

Notice what side the bike is on?


It is a low side. A high side would have put it on the left.

Doesn't a low-side mean that the tires lost traction and the bike precedes the rider in the direction of travel, where in a high-side the sliding bike essentially trips over the tires, tossing the rider ahead of it in the direction of travel? Or have I been doing it wrong all these years?

It's a lowside with a highside toss.

I think there is something we are missing from shot 1 to 2. The back wheel goes from sliding towards the outside of the corner to the inside....If we could see how the bike got spun around it may answer the low vs hi side debate. My guess is he fish tales the back end then hi sides...

Dude ate it into a ditch 2nd turn above the resort, had his 72 year old mom on the back. He was going down hill by the time the ambulance got there. They took him to UT, hope he's still alive. He was local from Maryville.

So from now on the story behind each photo other people put up must be researched prior to making an attempt at a humorous comment within a thread that is designated for such?

not going to happen.

That's what I figger- rear gained traction and snapped back into line so hard it tossed him off. It was leaned far enough to the right the energy went into snapping the rear back into line instead of flipping the bike.
