  • Adam Brayton crashes in Cairns
  • Nice crash, but where’s the spectator nicking his bike?

    I think that is the spectator

    Ah, sorry – not had my morning coffee yet. Wondered why no body armour, but didn’t compute

    Don’t think it’s a helmet, just a cap?

    Not helmet, baseball cap, at which point he knees himself in the face hard.

    Hope he is ok.
    Although I don’t know what he was thinking when he took the bike..

    Is that the guy who earned Peaty a repeat run?

    On the plus side it looks like Steve got a much better second run in than his first. It total 5 runs in 3 days and puts it in the top 10. Respect.

    Guy on bike – tool

    I don’t think he took (i.e. nicked) it.. sounded like he was just taking it down after Brayton’s crash but then Rob Warner got a bit carried away and embellished it a bit.. see the replay at 1:17:50

    I wonder how long it took for the medics to get that Adam wasn’t out of it he was just speaking Cumbrian 🙂

    Just updating the Shomano BDS marshal brief now and adding, ‘Do not let spectators take an injured riders bike down the course or hill. Request BDS track maintenance to transport the bike back to race registration.

    New rule for the BDS 🙂

    It certainly looks like a serious injury could be inflicted when he ragdolls down the course.

    I heard the fella broke his neck.

    The comments on Peaty’s facebook pic of the crash suggest he has spinal injuries.

    Just watched the womens couple of nasty falls on the rock section.

    If true, the poor bastard.

    Sickening in two ways.

    1. This poor guy could have a life changing injury
    2. The comments being hurled around on the web. All with little regard that a human being could be seriously injured.

    Hope the guy recovers.

    Very sad 🙁

    Whilst the guy who “took” the bike was an idiot, i hope he recovers fully! It just shows eh, even the “easy” bits of a pukka worlds DH course can bite you. Ouch!

    Having just watched the replay of the event, some of the riding on the slippy, rooty off camber bits was proper, proper sketchy! Watch Gee’s run, and he’s literally a milesecond from binning it at the end of the “alien tree” section. Hero to Zero in less than a second. Those guys, and girls are GOOD, really, really good 😉

    Original crash here!

    Link to an animated version here, as well as some other nice pictures.

    Spectator who crashed;

    He has 2 broken vertebrae and a dislocated shoulder, (in his words”all fixable”

    Gas to tree!

    Nice to see Brayton and Peaty pouring oil on this, the boy did something daft but he didn’t mean any harm. On another day he might have ended up an internet legend, the spectator who rode a world cup.

    Another spectator’s shoes rode to the win :mrgreen: Flat pedalz for medalz.

    He has 2 broken vertebrae and a dislocated shoulder, (in his words”all fixable”

    fixable yes but he was on the phone to Steve Peat at the time, you got to act tough when he’s on the phone.

    Flat pedalz for medalz.

    Or, perhaps it was pinz for teh winz? 😉

    This has been on my mind all day. Hopefully someone will publish a proper update so everyone knows the craic.

    I asked a Marshall at Ft Bill once what would happen if, that happened, and got told the fans would stop the rider……

    Aye right.

    Also, Braytons actual crash. Holyshit.

    The proper update (from peaty and brayton) was the guy got the bike was mate of a marshall and was going to walk it down for him to the pits, decided to ride it when the red flags were out (from pink bike there may have been an extra one due to a snake on track – nothing to do with Bryceland) So during the red flag he must have got on and ridden down, peaty was held at the top under the red flag then set off and there was another red flag due to this guy smashing himself.

    No word as to how much XXXX gold was involved.
