that's ridiculus...amazing he's ok. I honestly thought he'd be dead or paralyzed by watching that. Looks like the bike took out the soft wall just ahead of him and he went in head first...or close to it... He certainly did get lucky. One of those deals where not remembering it could be a plus, even if it means he won't know what caused it.

Look at the film again. That is NOT AIR FENCE. It is blocks of foam. The foam does have cut slots in them though. Air fence would not have bounce up and out of the way even after the bike had hit it.

Maybe a tether to secure foam blocking down would have worked better. Just a thought.
