Have you crashed lately? Could it have been avoided? If so, how?
This clip was from a stunning alpine ride in Revelstoke BC and shows my first crash in over a year. I was fortunate to only acquire a few scratches.
My goal as a mountain biker is to never crash, and this one could have been prevented. I was going just a little too fast on an unknown trail, slightly slower would have been just as much fun and perhaps even more pleasurable.
It's a lofty goal, but not a naive one - I know I may crash again, but if I'm able to stay true to my goal the reasons for the crash will be largely outside of my control.
What's your crash philosophy?
