    That was a pretty rough angle to be landing on also. Straight down on the front tire low on the ramp like that has to be real rough on it. As said it was probably cracked and not checked. Definitely good excuse to check your bike over thoroughly while cleaning it up.

    My brother had a fork break on a landing like that. Stuck his upper canines through his lip when his face bounced off the dirt. He got in trouble more than once for sticking a straw in the holes and drinking water that way. Figured mom would kill him but she never did.
