Deceleration: This is it.

The X-Games is awesome to watch, but not so awesome when people crash and get injured.  That was the case with Toomas Heikkinen a few days ago. It was rumored that he broke his ankle and got a few other bumps and bruises.  Considering the speed and the extremely abrupt deceleration, I’d say he did fairly well if that was his worst injury.

  1. …and the landing ramp actually moved from the impact! Raunchy bad crash and looked like a little flame at the bottom. THAT is one great safety cage build!

  2. Oh, by the way I still have my ‘Mongoose & Snake’ Hot Wheels set and box this insane race was patterned after!
