Motocross Rider Faceplants Really Hard

Motocross just wouldn't be as fun and thrilling without the jumps, but landing properly isn't that easy sometimes.
Getting airborne is fairly easy, given the speed and all the bumps on a decent track. But maintaining balance in mid-air and landing the bike safely are things which have to be mastered, lest crashes occur.

Even more than a simple lowside in a fast corner, failing to balance the bike prior to landing can lead to some pretty serious faceplants and it's more than once when we say guys sustaining very serious injuries after a bad landing and subsequently crashing hard.

Luckily, the guy in this movie was only shaken pretty bad, but his accident is a very serious reminder of how quickly can things go wrong in motocross, even at the amateur level.
