That’s a neat photo due to the tire folding under increased weight distribution. Bad for the crash.

Geaux Adam! We’re happy to report that although he got pretty shaken up by the crash, Adam was back with us racing last weekend.

Duh…and that is why you don’t run super low pressure and jump. XC fool.

Were you hurt? Did you finish the race?

Left fork fail, why do people continue to buy such an inferior design?

@Sean – I was okay except for a few scraps. I also cracked the helmet. Got back on the bike and finished the race.

@jeei – I don’t know why you say the lefty failed. It worked perfectly and it is still just fine. Might have bent a regular fork in this situation.
