An Enduro Rider's Funny Crash in the River

There are rather few non-enduro riders who know the exhilarating feeling of accomplishment after successfully wading a river on your bike. If you're an enduro or adventure rider, river crossing is one thing you'll run into sooner or later, so being somewhat trained in this really pays off.
When it comes to training, you'd better bring a friend with you, just in case something goes wrong. And by all means things tend to go wrong when crossing rivers on a bike, and we don;t know a single enduro rider who has never gotten wet doing this.

The present footage is as funny as it is educational: it's always funny to see someone crash in the middle of the river and getting all wet, without getting hurt. And it's really important to learn the proper balance between the speed you ride at when entering the water and the surface you're riding on.

The river bed is already slippery so you can only relay on the inertia and the thrust of the bike. However, too much speed and riding hard into a big boulder WILL crash you into the water, no matter what. Hope for the best and try to at least avoid getting caught under the bike. Because you'll be getting wet anyway.
