    Looks like he started his turn soon enough, but he was going so fast that when he pumped a bump, it sent him skipping wide quite a ways.

    Did anybody actually SEE any blood? Or just a couple of wires and some gooey white stuff...

    "Now he's worried. You cut him. You hurt him! You see?! You see?! He's not a machine! He's a man!"

    Daaaaayum! That was a solid crash...and he just gets back up and on it in a flash. He must be related to Chuck Norris somehow.

    And he didn't even cut the course! Good job man.

    That was rugged/gnarly. Gwin operates on levels much beyond the comprehension of the average joe. 5 stitches? He's fiiiiiine. Ice and Red Bull regiment, back on it like boom.

    Watching the front end wash like that reminded me of Neko's crash at MSA...
    Maybe those prototype Bontrager tyres could use alittle more knob onthe shoulders...
    Either way Gwin is a beast, getting up and finishing when he's a protected rider.
    Good Luck on Sunday Aaron.

    I think it was meant as a joke, like it takes an explosion to throw him off the bike.

    Well, it's official, AG is in fact a human. Based on round 2-5, you'd think he was a robot. We'll be pulling for Gwin on Sunday. USA, USA, USA!

    RYNO GLOBAL trains him very well to have those amazing reflexes, cuase he let go off the bike and placed his hands before his face it's why he could stand up so fast and keep going...

    Wow. When I go down hard, I need like 2-5 minutes to pull myself back together and collect my thoughts after getting my bell rung. Gwin's for real. Is the hand ok? Is he racing????? Deets....

    Well, he won't wrap up the championship with a result like that... Sucks to see anyone take a hit like that. Time for the Chiro!
