Does the guy on the left win???
Found the video:
The comment from Jeremy Smith(The name bottom left) was: In bmx racing its a rule that if 3 or more people crash before the first jump it is an automatic restart
The one time it paid to be slow off the mark!
I have never seen one of these things work properly so this is exactly what I expected
Well...somebody's fucking fired
How do they stand still?
The guy on the left was actually the slowest, right?
Funny thing is that this is surprisingly common
That hurts far more than it looks.
In 87 we didn't have digital control systems, it was a magnetic release.
Occasionally it would fail, or someone would cause it to hang up.
As far as UBI rules I'm not sure on grounds for DQ...but back when I raced, if your tired left contact with the gate before it began to fall you would be warned, second time you're DQ'd.
It was called slingshoting, and could get you tossed from the local track if it persisted.
epic victory royale
I used to race BMX professionally and I have had this happen to me before. It doesn’t hurt that bad but is pretty embarrassing. In this case the cadence and the gate weren’t synced up so the gate released late causing all the riders that timed it correctly to flip it and the guy that was late ended up surviving. I have flipped it on my own mistiming and the part you need to worry about is the gate coming down on you if your really early. Funny enough I’m outside teaching my 6 year old daughter how to ride a bike as I write this and I’m going to take her to the track this week to watch me ride.
i think the start line needs to be redesigned.
I for once actually expected what was going to happen on this sub 😂
Back when I bmx-d this happened to us and I was next to the only person that made it through the gate, dude ran right over my torso
They held down the A button too long.
Need just the right timing, like in Mario Kart
They didn't time their turbo boost right!
The guy on the left lost. Always that one guy.
"It's a race...I am winning"
It's like when Eric the Eel, who came from a landlocked country in Africa, I believe, and first saw a swimming pool weeks previously, managed to get into the Olympics swimming because everyone else in his qualifier got disqualified.
The first thing you learn in a bicycle is not to fall.
a win’s a win
Are they balancing on those bikes (Before the gate mishap), or is something holding them up?
I love how the guy with the shittest reaction time of them all just rides away while everyone else dies
Everybody do the flop
I thought this person had pulled a Stephen Bradbury
They're not ready for Hell Track
Their pants aren't tight enough duhhh
This has already been posted a few weeks ago. Get some original content.
The new trials game is looking great
Is it weird that I expected this?
Actually that was expected.
The slowest one won
That was entirely expected, my friend.
Wtf...i didn't see a technique in the line up...only bmx guys would understand
How do they stay balanced before the gate opens?
Hah, like me when i play Trials
Patience is a virtue
When you see a video like this with one of those drop down gates the gates failing to work and everybody faceplanting is exactly what you expect.
Had this happen once waaay back in the day.
We were at a shitty track in the middle of nowhere because we had to race at 3 different tracks to qualify for the state championship.
Their gate was manually operated and the hillbilly that was running the gate was obviously drunk, and hit the gate up button, instead of the one to drop it.
I managed to stay upright, but almost everyone else went over the bars.
I'm so fucking glad this isn't recorded in vertical, imagine how much you would've missed
Way to go Kyle
Holy shit, the fucked up the timing bad.
Not the drivers, the starters and / or mechanic behind it.
Actually this is totally what I expected when i saw the thumbnail
Michael Bradbury on the left...
