Not my video, my chest cam sadly stopped recording about 30-45 seconds before all this (full card)
Skip to 9:35. The jump into the berm to the bridge is right there that I reference below
Theres a large step-down jump before the bridge. I came into it way too hot and jumped to flat. Landed so hard it put my body into the handlebars. At that point I was a out of control bullet train. I made a spit second decision to grab a handfull of front brake and wash the front tire out and take my chances flying/tumbling rather than going over the cliff with my weight over the front of the bike.
I was able to somewhat fly towards that first big beam on the rightside of the bridge, I tried grabbing for it but was moving so fast through the air that I couldnt hold on. It basically then flipped me backwards over the cliff. At some point then I either smashed my knee into a rock or the ground at the bottom. When we got my kne pads off my knee cap was completely on the side of my leg. Ambulance trip and ride to the hospital resulted in X-Rays and some tests that determined I have torn my ACL, MCL and LCL ligaments entirely, as in they no longer exist) and well as dislocated my knee and fractured my tibia. Tomorrow is my first Ortho appointment where we get to evaluate when/where/how surgery happens.
Two quotes from dudes on RM regarding the crash.
"To crash there and end up down on Duffman, holy sh1t man! Healing vibes for sure, that's a hell of a crash."
"Thats a fair way to rag doll, and that "step down" is a bit ridiculous, requires a serious brake check and so does the bridge after."
In this photo, I went between the bridge and the tree on the right.
..and in this photo it's looking at the bridge from below. I landed in the bottom on the other side of the bridge.
