Watched it on TV, brutal crash. I did not see all of the practice runs, but the tv commentator did say he was having carb issues and had to work on his bike.Just got back form Staples Center. Watched some dude wuss out on the practice runs for best whip then disappear all together when it came time to compete. Come time for best trick and the guy's back out there for the warm-up runs. He keeps coming down the approach ramp then pulls off at the last second before the launch. We were all laughing at him in the stands.
Then comes his first run for best trick - his first run at the launch all night. We were all waiting for the dude to wuss out again...
He throttles up, hits the ramp, starts a rotation for a FRONT FLIP!
Doesn't land it.... at least not on his bike.
Dude only rotates about half way - he laid lifeless on the dirt for about 10 minutes before they finally took him away on a back board. My wife and kids thought he was dead.
Luckily, about 15 minutes later they report that he's moving all limbs and talking. I hate it when shit like that happens
