    Waawaaweewaah. That takes the cake for biggest brain fart huck. HAAAAAA then these guys follow him straight to hell and back. Watch out who you ride behind, might have you jumping into doomsday scenario. That slomo looks like an old war movie, man down, ooh another down, ooooh another. Bikes all mash up.

    One small mis-step for Chatel, one giant leap for Argentina.

    Look before you leap comes to mind in this scenario. Also, it might be time to build an actual lander there for the next unlucky souls that opt for the man's line.

    Holy ****! If they had to do it, at least they didn't case on that railing...

    For real. Less likely to be walking away tagging the railing.

    That is European trail building for you.

    Rather than having 42 different warning signs per obstacle like North America? These guys should have looked before they leaped, simple.

    Well, obviously. That way they would not have been hurt.

    But there is certainly more courage in Europe to build awkward, sketchy, and surprising stuff. You can't rely quite so much on common sense and absolutely have to, as you said, study every feature before you ride it.

    Study? Maybe dont hit stuff blindly. I've been to chatel 3 years in a row and never seen anyone do that, admit it, it's their fault to ride like that :D

    :-) Of course I admit that. I would be way too scared to ride that kind of stuff blind like them.

    But building two wooden bridges right after each other, that both look the same; but one is a high-speed gap, the other one a set-up to a tight turn; you have to admit that's a tiny bit treacherous.

    There should be a sign indicating turn left - no drop - and well, these guys should know not to drop off anything they haven't first looked at.
