A 20 year collection of shots showing What Not To Do is here. Starting off is Rick Johnson "Too Hip" doing a flip into these Saddleback spectators.

I love it... especially when the track markers are the spectators having a few cold ones. Can you imagine that today? LOL... keep them coming Tom. You probably have one of me in your 20 year collection. Thank you for the memories.

A Crash 'n Burn photo that stands out to me was a picture of a rider landing on top of another and you can just barely see the rider below. I cringe when I see that pic. The photographer had the perfect angle because he was looking down at the crash. One of the riders in the picture now has a slideshow on Youtube. I've seen it before but now I can't find the link.... Is this too vague?? Just asking.

One of the best photo's is this guy crashing at a mud race head first and all you can see is his legs and middle the rest is under the mud spraying into the air!

Wow, I can see the whites of your eyes as well!

Here is the link to the slideshow that I posted about earlier.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V0D_YmlfGvs

Has the picture of the rider landing on top of another. I think I was scared to go over any blind jump after seeing that picture. May still be.

This could be considered as a burn shot. Here this Elsinore burns it's way through the mud bog with a little help from some rope pulling friends. Saddleback wasn't hard packed clay on a rainy day!

Been there. I remember going over a blind jump in Quincy Ill. I'm about 4 feet in the air and see nothing but bikes down on the other side. Brakes don't work worth a damn at that altitude but I sure locked'em up.

And No I didn't save it.

This Saddleback pile-up finds Mark Milazzo on the bottom of it all.

Where was the track in Quincy Il? I lived there for a few years in the early 90's and worked at Mid West Performance & TNT.

This was the early 70's and I really can't remember where it was located.. I was living up the river in Burlington at the time.

A bike sure goes faster without a rider on it! In this case that happens to be Chris Heisser at Saddleback.

Looks like '86! Man, what a pile-up. I wonder if #55 is Jon Garner from Broken Arrow Oklahoma. If this is 125 novice it probably is him.
