Jeezus fing crizzle. That looks really bad. This happened to me one night, but I was going much slower, all i got was a little hop, and my rear didn't jump at all. It was nighttime on a road i had never traveled.

Same happened to me not too long ago but I didn't flip or lose control, thank god, I just had to buy new underwear after that . Looks like the bump scared him as the first wheel hoped it then he "goosed" the throttle as the rear wheel just came to the bump.

I give it a 6! He could have got a lot more air than that and he should be ashamed of the landing :

F*&^ that looked like it hurt. He's super lucky that behemoth didn't land on him!
