Posted by Jesse Richman:

"Funny when you find yourself in those situations when all you can do is clinch and brace for impact.... Today that did not work out so well for me. After awesome help from an amazing support crew I got one broken leg and some pretty messed up ligaments... Will know more soon but doing good now. Thanks everyone for all the support!!! And good job to the new King of the Air @Kevin Langeree...... Shawn you are the man!!!"

Bad luck for Jesse for sure. :( Congrats to Kevin Langaree!

Highest jump was 25.3m, two riders in hospital, both fine.

Your legs would not get ripped off like this if a binding system existed that popped the rider off the board if enough pull out force got sensed.
