In keeping with Random’s upcoming birthday, here’s a random picture taken by Grahame Baker in Moab, Utah.
The pilot is Dave Perkins attempting the first Cross Country Front Flip only recently perfected by dirt jumpers and other nutters.
Check out the technique – the weight all the way over the front wheel, the brakes hard on and the look of abject terror as his face races towards hard pointy rock.
Amazingly he wasn’t killed. There was a collective intake of breath as he bounced down the remaining rock steps and lay motionless for a second.
But we knew all was well after patching up bleeding knees as Dave asked for a medicinal lager. It was about 9am in the morning.
