    PMC101 Ae Forest crash

    Hard to actually see this but but if you look close enough you can just catch him toppling over.

    I was thinking earlier its a good job I hadn't just ridden onwards after that first drop! At least the weather held out. Have you got to send your mashed helmet to Urge?

    It is a good job, first time i've seen you run.

    Don't have to send the helmet off, the UK dealer is sorting out the replacement rather than the manufacturer. Which were a pleasure to talk to actually, totally customer focused. Quite like the idea of keeping the helmet too, going to hang it up.

    How deep was that drop off. Anything over a foot scares me.

    I'm guessing the initial drop is about 2 foot. However the ground then drops away in a big curve. Maybe 5 or 6 feet in total?
