Well played Joe! Having spent years Mt. biking (and crashing in similar fashion) in the Moab area, I know your angle was looking after you. Maybe to appease the desert God's, you can add a disclaimer of "No cryptobiotic soil was damaged in the making of this film"

[QUOTE=gots_a_sol;20889684]Ouch. Glad to hear you are ok.



A local guy did a similar immediate left turn maneuver. His landing was a bit different though.

I like how the bike continues to float

I figured the two of you were headed to Black Dragon and Eagle Canyon. The Dragon didn't get you, but the Eagle did! Next time you want to ride the rest, give us a head up. I'm sure some company can be had!

Ken,

Yeah, I remember our encounter. We did Black Dragon that same day, and camped near some cool Indian pictographs between BD and EC. Did Eagle Canyon the next morning, or did it do me?

Just saw that today. Sucks to crash like that but sure is good to be lucky and live! Miraculous that there were no major injuries.

One thing you convinced me of, and that is to carry my Spot tracker on my body!

Glad you are OK and props to that tough DR!

Well, the good news is that you "stuck" the landing... like a dart!

This. Man, this puts a whole new light on that it is to do an epic ride such as the TAT or TCAT. I'm SO glad that you're okay. If I ever go DSing, I'm definitely going to get a SPOT.

Definately an interesting sport. Has me thinking of an adventure. Your video shows you never know what can happen.

Interesting, the bike appear to land tires down first (front first), tilted to the left. This allowed the suspension to absorb a lot of the initial momentum and let you off before the bike continued on down the hill.

Mighty considerate of the DR to treat you so well Landing any other way would clearly been much worse

Glad you made it thru your 1st lesson in flight school. Welllll, considering everyone knows we don't often get too many 2nd chances, this experience makes a good case for extra care in the near future.
