Remember folks, lift the bike before the planks.

He was on the wrong side of the bike. Off on the left, not right.

I know that left side is the convention, but is there any reason for this?

Don't get grease on your kit if you dismount left. Also chainrings are sharp.

there is nothing wrong on getting off on that side, I do it all the time.
Kevin Pauwels does as well :P ...

The bike just bounced on the ground while approaching the barrier and because of that he caught the top tube a bit too late

btw, I feel sorry for that guy

Aye there is no wrong or right way of dismounting, just an established way. Being able to dismount on the right side of the bike comes in handy in certain situations. It also helps develop motor skills in general. Part of Hinault's comeback training was doing cross and being make to dismount on the RHS of the bike.

I think I remember seeing a photo of Hinault jumping a rider and bike that had fallen during a race. Does anyone have that? Does my memory serve me right?

Given such a straight, fast runup he should have bunny-hopped it.

A fantastic stack nonetheless.
