Rick it looks (by looking at the position of the bike where its down) like he went into the turn and it got away from him and slammed him.

Maybe someone who was there can shed light?

It looks too far into that berm to have been a 'cased' jump

he wasn't doing any jumps, if i recall from what zx6rrican said it was his first real time on a dirt bike on a track - he was taking it slow. real cause isn't 100% but he went over the bars and came down shoulder first in the ground. might have been too hard on the front brakes.

Until you get used to it, I would suspect it's a common mistake for people coming from sport bikes to dirt bikes - I'm sure I would have done it unknowingly.

Nice Pix's!

U can get away with just using the back brakes when u first start riding...but, As U get Faster, U'll have no other choice but, to learn to use the front brake!

Ouch..on the break!

i believe they said it wasn't broken or dislocated, just separated. Rican told me in a PM he goes for surgery to reattach 3 AC joints i believe :( We need to have like a TSB picnic for the hurt riders who cant ride for a while :P
