    Not KO'd but the impact of the GoPro trying to puncture my lungs winded so bad I couldnt breath for a while and I thought I'd broke my ribs :( I had forgotten it was attached, didn't know it had fallen off I just thought it was the impact of the ground initially that was the cause of so much pain.

    Seems daft that it can go so wrong so easliy. My first run was perfect, well in my head anyway, I didnt crash so thats good in my book. Just the one lapse of concentration, body weight to far forward, maybe head down, not sure. But hats off to the talented skilled riders that make it look soooo easy.

    Bloody hell!

    Gizzy is my normal run and that second table has a wicked kick which was redone around a month ago and it just throws you up, as you found out.

    On your first run did you manage the kicker over the berm then the far drop in? love that bit!!

    Get well soon and maybe hook up next time you go gizzy.

    Not quite sure which bit you mean. So here's the run.

    Comparing the two runs this is a lot slower, maybe a reconnaissance run, before I gunned it like a muppet :)

    Yeah I'll drop you an email the next time we venture up.

    Nice run! at 44secs in pause and look were your left hand is, see the kicker?

    you jump that over were you go with your bike and take the further drop which is bigger than the one you did.

    Looks like they have altered the end as well since I was last up.

    Ah I hadn't seen that. I'm not that talented or quick enough to have used that to take the other line.
    Maybe with some more practice.

    Yeah it takes a bit to get it but once you do its a great line to take, also a little tip for the jumps as you come out of the forest, hit them slow, too fast and they throw you, you can still get decent height and length as they all have kickers.
