    always be ready

    Here is a great recovery. He clearly thought about what could happen and was ready to react

    That was great. Tough to think like that in those situations.

    I dont think he knew he was going to do that until it happened... try to get
    a look at his face when he gives it gas....

    I agree...given how long he let it slide down the drop, I don't get the impression that he clearly thought about what might happen...or maybe just didn't know that was a recipe for a flip..and just got lucky on this one.

    Re: always be ready

    I disagree.

    That was all skill, he knew the potential was there and how to get out of it when it almost happened. Also knew he had to stop at the bottom of the hill to avoid hitting his buddies........

    his mistake was being too heavy on the brakes, but other than that, some good driving.

    I think the best saves of a similar nature was I believe on a BTG video. It was a YJ going over backwards and he was able to jam it into reverse and stab the gas.
