Wow, all this advice from people that have never even ridden it. Make a lip, take a foot off the landing, fill in the g-out.

Hell. it's not really even a jump. It's a simple damn hill that rolls off into a flat. Really slow riders don't even catch air off it. You clear it and it's hammer on uphill (4th gear) through the rollers (when they are there) and over the top. The quicker you get back on the ground the more drive you get up the other 2/3 of HP hill. If I could scrub I would too. It's way faster.

There isn't a damn thing you can do to "fix" that "jump".

I doubt your scrubbing it that hard to stay low.

We better ban ruts too while we're at it.

Pourcel didn't crash on this section.

Scrub like this, and you're occasionally going to get bit.

This one spooked me a bit. Snag that front wheel, and it's all over.

It's ridiculous though. You're not gonna stop the riders going for it, or scrubbing on a jump that demands them to stay low.

If that's a ski jump to flat there is never going to be any more crashes like the ones Forkner or Canard have.

One tiny change, something that would literally make no difference to the racing, the track character etc.. and everyone acts like we're talking about no more whoops in SX. FFS. It's just simple rider safety, and we all benefit. Wouldn't you rather have seen Forkner or Canard battle it out for the win, or for the season? SMDH.

It's funny I find the hardasses are usually C class riders rolling around the track telling the pros they need to man up. I find it hilarious.

That wasn't the jump that caused that crash look like they hit something on the ground or cross rutted.

That is also the jump that TP199 wheelied up the entire way, then pulled a heel-clicker after take-off. If you crash on that jump, it is your fault, not the jump's.

JT just spent quite a bit of time on this exact issue on Racer X Breakdown.

https://racerxonline.com/2018/07/31/breakdown-washougal

It's not the jump. It's the way elite riders push the envelope. Nothing to fix.

Close the track down! MX needs to be changed to just a dirt drag race on a 1/2 mile wide strip so the riders won't get hurt.






Man up or GTFO!

Guys !! Look....that step up is probably the easiest jump on the track. It's just that these super fast guy's hit it at warp speed , while scrubbing it.

With all the guys hitting that jump over a whole day.... it's probably in the 2000+ times it gets hit. And just like any obstacle......some times , someone makes a mistake.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Seriously people....We can "Vital" all we want but nothing is going to change unless someone starts an online petition and shares it on Facebook!

Also, those two GuyB photo's are nuts

My life is great, happily married to a smokeshow mumma to two funny, healthy kids... great paying jobs that we love, lucky enough to not want for anything, own a house, have hobbies, friends and family and our health.

Shockingly, I've also somehow managed to find time to post on a forum about a sport I'm really passionate about... and excuse me for thinking it'd be better if the stars were still racing instead of being carted off in the medic rig.

It's not hard. Make that jump a single and no one crashes like that. It still gets scrubbed, they still haul ass, just no scrub to nose tap crash.

I really don't even know what to say anymore. . .

A roller, we're talking about taking out a roller because guys are scrubbing it. Holy hell. . .

Shit happens.

That first step up the uphill used to be a bit more defined and more of a traditional “step up.” Over the years it’s changed and has a bit of a vague face....no problem for regular guys who catch some air and then head up the hill, but I see how it bites these guys trying to scrub and push so hard. I feel that it just has a really vague feel to where you’re going to lift off, more of a odd lump than a ramp-jump.

While we’re discussing the track...Nothing to do with Hills crash but the whole section between the road jump and whoops sucks and needs totally redesigned imo.

No, no we're not.. We're talking about slightly changing a roller so that when a dude wants to scrub the holy shit out of it he doesn't clip his front wheel and eat complete shit

Why could they not get rid of this unnecessary dirt? Only thing it would change is Canards broken leg and Forkner's bell
