You should watch it; it's very revealing. The stunt wasn't as easy as it looks.Doidn't watch the making of.. but looks like they rode the run out with their rear brake fully locked sitting on the licked rear wheel all the way down
They did mentioned "it takes a special someone..." to do that kind of stunt.You should watch it; it's very revealing. The stunt wasn't as easy as it looks.
BTW, there is now way I would do that on a bike. The thought of that seat anywhere near my crotch going over that terrain at speed is more than I want to even think about.
I have three children. Two of which are female type persons. I expect no less of them (and no more) than I expect from my son.YOU GUYS
I just want to point out that one of the riders was Casey Brown.
Like, a female type person.
That is all.
Okay, that's not all.
Just after 7:30, McCaul is the first to jump. He lands smoothly, then rockets through the couloir before augering his front tire into the snow and wiping out. Still, he’s unscathed and Brown seems buoyed by his success.
“Do you still want to do this?” asks Schaffer. “Oh, yeah,” says Brown.
Ten minutes later, the radio crackles. “Thirty seconds,” the voice says. Brown adjusts her blue and red full-face helmet, wraps her hands around her handlebars, and lowers her head.
Brown pushes off and heads toward the lip of the couloir. As she takes flight, the group falls completely silent. Brown is in the air for two intense seconds, and then… “She stuck it!” shouts somebody from the TGR crew.
As soon as Brown hits the snow, she begins picking up a tremendous amount of speed. Unable to use her brakes on the slick surface, she begins careering down at over 60 miles per hour, hitting undulations that cause her to hover above the surface. Finally, about 300 feet down, her bike rotates and Brown goes flying over the handlebars, landing headfirst, then tomahawking 50 feet down the mountain. When she stops sliding, she raises her hands in the air.
When I finally make it down to Brown, about 20 minutes after her crash, she’s stretching her back and wiping crusted blood from the end of her nose. “I was going so fast!” she says. She giggles a little and tilts her head to one side to work out a kink. “But I made it,” she says. “I’m still alive.”
Absolutely. But I'll continue to be excited about seeing women do things like this until it's so normal that it's, well, normal and not noteworthy. I don't think we're there yet.I have three children. Two of which are female type persons. I expect no less of them (and no more) than I expect from my son.
I'm not so sure.Absolutely. But I'll continue to be excited about seeing women do things like this until it's so normal that it's, well, normal and not noteworthy. I don't think we're there yet.
