|Went down first time (at speed) |
The short of it:
Reducing radius corner not well marked.
Leaning into left lane because I was too close to yellow which had grooves.
Wanted to back off the line so started to lean the bike up and look for an escape route.
First thing I spotted was a gravel patch and hit it (since I was going too fast to react, which I tried to do at the last millisecond).
Front tire lost traction, hit guard rail --- compressed ---- turned ---- ejected me and deployed my air vest...
Full details with gear / bike damage breakdown in the video below.
