VIDEO: Downhill Faceplant Scorpion Crash 20

If he had 29-inch wheels he woulda pulled it. *You're doing it wrong* taken to a whole new level.

    Seeing how this is an insanely rare event on top of the guy being completely fine, I'd say this is hardly a showcase as to why Leatt braces are a good investment although most of us know that it is added protection... yadda?

    Looked like he had really strong neck muscles. First time I've seen someone do a handspring using the visor of their helmet and their neck, that or his clipless pedals and the forward momentum of the bike...

    I would consider him lucky. I don't think the guy needs to break his neck for it to be a proper showcase of why you should buy a Leatt? Going over the bars onto your head (regardless of destroying your wheel) is not a rare event especially if you are racing clipped in.

    i saw a guy walk away from a broken neck... leatts are so easy to wear, i figure why not wear it?
