Personally, I dislike videos that have people dying in crashes. Those are too sad for me.

Yes I know what you mean. It's sad and makes my stomach turn, but it's reality. If I ever crashed and burned I would want people to see the video to see what mistake I've made. To be fair, I'm only assuming some of them died because of how bad the crashes were so if it makes you feel better you can pretend they all walked away with bumps and bruises.

Videos's with the "victim" seemingly dying, or just going limp are difficult, but also very valuable. I have been shocked by some of them in a good way. Watching part of that video makes me respect to power of PPE/ATGATT. I've seen some worse videos out there (people losing limbs or worse in serious collisions), and oh boy do I not want to make the mistakes those people made.

They're not for everyone, so I appreciate that he gave us a warning before we watch it.

I'm not even really sure what happened there. I guess he just hit a slippery spot and as he was using the handlebars more than his weight for steering, it lost balance. But that looked like an awkward fall...

This one is interesting.

It is definitely slippery as his handlebars were able to point 45° off his path of travel.

My best guess is he tensed up and the rear tire couldn't travel it's path any longer.

I say the rear as it doesn't appear that the front slid out first.



Even in the ice, turn with the handlebars, but keep light hands and use your feet as outriggers.
