Most memorable (funny or painful) Motocross accident My father-in-law had taken my bike for a ride and came back to say the brakes weren’t working properly. He fixed them for the next event and my first race back, I tore in to the first corner with the rest of the group, tapped the front brake and went flying over the handlebars. Seems he fixed the brakes a little too well!
