It was a huge failure of your pole.
You can go back and fix it - erect a new option.

+1. But without the rear brake on singletrack - give it heaps on gravel roads tho :satan:
I feel like a dick using this moto style at my speeds but once I ditched the clipz it's the only thing that feels natural.

Outside foot down, inside foot out speedway styles, twisting right-hand grip with synchronised motorbike noises seems to work. Or on the tight corners - inside foot down, pedal digs in, back wheel lifts and turns on a dime! (with mixed results).
