Scrubgrass Ohv Park Templeton, pa Franks hill climb x3 crash

The driver is alive thank god. Ive never even seen a quad make this hill climb only dirt bikes. He was so close! I hope the stock rzr cage would hold up like the x3's.

Re: Scrubgrass Ohv Park Templeton, pa Franks hill climb x3 crash

Using a Can Am to take out a Yamaha.... Well done, Polaris

But seriously, glad he came out ok and that there was a crowd to help him out. This is always my fear when I take on bigger stuff with no riding partners.

Re: Scrubgrass Ohv Park Templeton, pa Franks hill climb x3 crash

That is a well designed cage. My stock XP1K cage folded like a cheep suit after two nose over rolls. Glad he survived that was BAD...

It doesn't seem that bad of a hill but we all know how video never gives justice to the terrain.

Re: Scrubgrass Ohv Park Templeton, pa Franks hill climb x3 crash

That looked like a stock cage on the X3? IF so, it held up really good. I think better than a stock rzr cage would have.

There were some definite hard hits in that. Just curious what safety gear he was using ? He sustained some pretty serious injuries, even though it could have been much worse.

Just curious because I'm trying to make my rig as safe as I possibly can. Harnesses, window nets and wearing a helmet but what else ? Maybe a neck support like NHRA requires in some of the faster classes ?

Re: Scrubgrass Ohv Park Templeton, pa Franks hill climb x3 crash

Stock cage, stock shoulder belt & a DOT rated bike helmet.

He said the tibia to knee separation was already a bad knee, but he had used his leg to hang the F on in there. All them ribs were most likely the stock shoulder belt & seat sides.

Real lucky he stayed in that thing.

The hill doesn't "look" that bad on video, but for years it was cycles only, then some quads could make it up. What got him was the grass humps there at the top & that slight turn he had to make I think.

Wow, he was really lucky !

I bet he had the leg wedged into the dash to hold him in and that is how it got busted up. I bet the steering wheel is reshaped from holding on as well...

Re: Scrubgrass Ohv Park Templeton, pa Franks hill climb x3 crash

My in-laws were there that day, and actually missed seeing this crash in person by a few minutes. I'm glad he survived; a little bewildered by the bike helmet though? Anyway, we have been riding a little nearby, around the bear ridge campground. It appears some of you know Steve, and the area; do you ride that area as well? We are trying to find more trails that are legal to ride. Feel free to PM me if you care to share any information.

Thanks in advance.
