If you haven't seen this you should check it out. Racer Chad Reed at the 2011 Millville round of ama motocross looses his footing while leading up to a jump and takes a big fall. He manages to recover quickly and still place well in the race! An amazing recovery and shows a real talented racer.

I'm pretty sure if he'd landed to flat he'd have broken something. I think because of the hill and his sort of slide positioned landing then the subsequent roll he saved himself from serious injury.

In my days of scrambling the courses were different & more forgiving PLUS I had this habit of hanging onto the handlebars & seems like he had no choice. Give the rider guts for getting rolling again.


Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you.

some one cited this video as a similar recovery from a nasty racing spill. While not as spectacular as Reed's it's still a nice recovery.

Man, Chad Reed got some serious air in that spill. But it was great how he kept his body positioned just so even while flying through the air to have a chance at a decent landing. Pretty fortunate that he did not get seriously hurt. It did not look too good at first. Pretty tough dude!

What impressed me about the Scott Russell crash was his situational awareness. He made a real nice slide there, never lost track of where he was, he protected his body as best he could and picked that bike up like it was nothing. I would say he had just a bit of adreniline flowing! Great stuff, man!  The skill of the other riders to not get mixed up in the incident was pretty impressive as well.
