Yip. I'd have to say, that landing looks like it's designed for getting crash footage.

Mine a week before leaving to go to the Tri Age Group World Champs a couple of weeks back ... still healing...

Hataitai Velodrome. Tyre slipped on line, down I get and another rider went over the top of me. Nothing broken except the bike, just some ouch grazes.

Looked awesome to watch apparently.

Ouch that has got to hurt! I ended up on my head but at least i was wearing my pressure suit. I raced downhill a couple of weeks ago i crashed on quite a fast section, took a lot of skin off of my forearm. I chucked my suit on afterwards and what do ya know, not one crash! I gotta be honest though, my crash wasn't as bad as yours there tricks121.
