I'm calling BS on this entire ride. 81.8 mph??? Hardly
Maybe ...just maybe in the trees he was a titch over 60mph, but even that is pure speculation
. With guys like this telling me they rode that fast, the first thing I want to see is their speedo and how THAT was set up. I've done 70 mph motor pacing 6 inches off the back of my training vehicle going down Ibex pass just outside of Death Valley Junction back in the day, and had a very difficult time hitting 60mph down Emigrant pass in Death Valley at 170 lbs training weight with a 53x12 on a 20 lbs.steel frame. Heck, with a 53x11 there simply would not be much of a gear left for me to slam much over 52mph these days ... at my advanced age.
And GoPro? They have the worst distortion of any camera I have ever seen. I mean just look at what 40kph (not even 25mph)looks like when he goes by the speed check sign. It looks "quick". Most of us are asleep at that speed and on impulse power.
And while I'm dumping on this guy, I'll also mention that he didn't hit ONE technical corner correctly. A real "noob" despite the fact that he can go downhill at speed in a straight line.
If you want to learn how to crash ...enter each and every turn exactly the way he does it. That is: Never go in deep and cut the apex early i.e. Which puts you EXACTLY in the wrong place!!!
That guarantees you'll go wide and dump it.
These people make me sick. NEXT!
