Update: Nov. 14
It was just a matter of time until this made it to Tosh.O and mainstream media. We all knew this fail was too grand to stay within the boundaries of mountain biking. It will now be part of Youtube culture and will be included in countless compilation videos.
We hope Cam Zink is up and about again riding trails and conquering new terrain. Here are some of his comments about the crash.
“The sun was in my eyes and it was hard to see the curve of the ramp and judge it properly so I went off how much I’d braked the run before,”
“As soon as I came off the lip I knew I was in trouble.”
“Since I was going over the [bike] bars I just had to eject and accordion myself,” he said. “You don’t want to stiffen up so you just brace yourself and let it happen. My heels took the brunt of the impact. They’re the only thing that really hurts.”
“This was one was really scary because as soon as I came off the jump I knew I was in trouble and it was a really long time in the air knowing that something bad was going to happen,”
“I’ve never heard myself so loud when I knew that I was going to crash.”
