He looked. Nothing he could do by that point.

If someone on here did it, I'd probably like it. Since it was done by someone I don't know, they're a fucking idiot.

I’m guessing it’s his shoes. You see that he has black shoes on in the closeup. One flies about a meter up in the air, the other… well you see.

I was thinking about this type of stupidity after reading about yet another flyover land extreme athlete dying in the mountains. When I started snowboarding the first priority was learning how to crash. Ragdoll, clothing getting ripped off crash while everyone else was under the pression they looked cool and were some smooth pussy slaying men of the molehill.

I get the same batty looks when I sprint hard into steep downhills and start carving around obstacles on the spencer. I'm getting tired of spending more energy keeping from doing things that the locals can't be party to seeing as I'm then responsible for their stupidity. The real tearjerker for me is how many of these morons have moved to the mountains now.

I once hit a pedestrian on my spencer (she saw a cab coming in the opposite lane, and literally jumped out into the street and right into my shoulder) and knocked her clean out of her shoes. Shoes always seem to go first in the yard sale.

One of my earliest memories is crashing my sled into disused trolley tracks at the bottom of Suicide Hill and sitting in the snow, dazed, looking at my feet wondering where my boots got to.

The one time I got left hooked at the bottom of the hill and went through the windshield, when I got up from the other side of the car both my shoes were gone. It's definitely a thing.

By far my worst spencer-car collision was saved from being much worse by my mtb shoes. The deceleration from35 to 0 partially occurred when I launched off the front corner of the Towncar mid illegal U-turn. Most of it happened after somehow detaching myself from the spencer in the course of doing two flips and one and a half twists landing facing backwards sliding upright on the toe spikes.

Just had a moment considering that scenario barefoot.

My shoes have never fallen off due to a collision. I also tend to tie my shoes. Do y'all do that?

Lost a good pair of cheap sunglasses, but not my shoes, when I fell off that mountain.

Came here to post this.

My last collision played out pretty similarly to the one in that GIF (cartwheel / flip off the windshield and all), and both my shoes stayed on my feet.

lulz yeah I was in spencer shoes.

But I've been in other collisions in the past (none as bad, though), and my normal people shoes have stayed on.

No idea how many of you are following the trans am but Jason Lane overtook Mike Hall, who has led since his initial 490 mile 29 hour push, this afternoon. The gap had been a steady 100 plus miles for over a week so it will be interesting to hear what shifted the balance almost 200 miles today putting Lane 96 ahead.

I don't have the rest of the plot yet but I figure it will be called "Low Hanging Fruit" or maybe just "Hardman" depending on how sexy the ending is

How did I miss this before?

smiley I don't appreciate the false competition for when I compile my memoirs into something of a dramatic read for the current age. At least his focus was narrow enough to only prove disruptive to one chapter.

Looked this morning and Hall is 50 miles ahead now.

I've been checking that Trans Am race thing too. I feel kinda bad because I think it was organized by this one bro that we made fun of for trying to ride a Pugsley over a mountain in three foot deep snow. Dude had to give up on that ride, but he is plugging along solidly midpack in the Trans Am which is totally awesome.
