    I've made that sound after crashes before. My last crash took a shot just below the waist from my steer tube above the stem. Way to smash out a run after a whipper like that! Yeeoww!

    watching the clip: ok, Gee is going fast, now Gee is in a corner, and now Gee is in the woods.... that berm totally collapsed. Scary. I mean luckily he found smaller saplings/brush and not a fully grown maple.

    That is the #1 reason I rock a stem pad. That was scary as hell - I've had to do inventory down there a few times...that brought back some painful memories.

    And to actually be able to race finals and finish within a second of the win is just mental.

    I used to rock a full BMX pad set (Schwinn bass boat gold.) on the front of my downhill bike. Top tube pad where it should be, stem pad where it should be and the cross bar pad cut in half, wrapped around either side of the top triple clamp.

    OMFG!! F$&k you, you worthless berm. If you can't hold Gees race speed what good are you. You should be flattened and rebuilt be people who know what they're doing. I hate you.

    Ok, can someone tell me why he pulled his pants down???
    Usually the first thing I do is rip off my helmet so I can breath better.
    Never occurred to me to drop trow.
    Did he hit the family jewels?

    If it was me, I'd be checking for a big brown log in the pants.

    Looks like he almost skewered those brass lugs of his.

    Word is he felt he blew out a nut. Holy shit - and he came back to race - nothing blocks his focus! Gee is superman!
