Thank god you lot don’t regulate the sky diving industry. You would stop all jumps until the ground was removed.

I think you’re onto something there. I’d be first in line then!

Go ahead, hurt yourself, make my day. I hate hospitals personally…

when people start demanding that rocks be removed from mountains so we don’t hurt ourselves ,I think indicates that we are truly doomed as a species!

Get rid of the rocks. It’s fair enough to have a stack in that sport but there is no need to head butt rocks like that on the way down.

Have you seen the Stromlo downhill course? There are a lot more rocks and nasty things to crash into. Still that doesn’t seem to deter some people from careening down the mountain for recreation…

It’s interesting how many people after viewing the video feel the need to assign blame…………..to either the rider ie (How Dare she do that without wearing body armor), to the custodians of the trail for knowingly allowing “dangerous” rocks to be present on a mountain trail and or to the Gov’t for not forcing all pushbike riders to get fingerprinted pay a couple hundred bucks to register their bikes and be forced to take some bullshit safety course.

Shit happens………….Shes not dead who cares?

The Gov’t can’t even put insulation into houses without accidentally killing a couple people ridding nature trails of rocks is a bit much.

How about we lay gym mats down on the sides of the track.

It’s a mountain. There are rocks on mountains.

‘Grrr’ is on the money. MTB is a HTFU or go home type sport (so is road cycling in fact, just in a different way).
