It's Footage Like This That Makes Mountain Bikers Want To Be First Aid Certified

After posting a disturbing crash video that has over 360K views, Norwegian mountain biker Mads André “Makken” Haugen got a ton of responses and wanted people to learn for his experience and appreciate how dangerous mountain biking can be so he posted a followup video.

Here is the original video with and then the secondary video with additional footage to give people a better understanding of the circumstances: 

“There has been a lot of reactions and questions on the clip i posted of @blombastic falling down the cliff. Something i fully understand and thats why i decided to post this clip. Here you get to see a bit more of the situation and how it went down. The first thing we did was calling a ambulance and made sure he was breathing. We were able to keep calm and not panic.

Looking back at it i realize we would not have been ready if the consequences was bigger. This ain’t a joke, this is a real sport with real consequences and I recommend everyone who rides to take a safety course and prepare for situations like these! Things get real serious real fast!! A lot of people ask how i am able to just laugh it. In my opinion thats my only option. If i would let these things get to me i would not be able to do the things i do and people need to understand this is just not a thing we do, this is who we are.

I choose to embrace moments like these, i choose learn from them and use them as constant reminder on how lucky we are to be healthy and living the happy lives we do.”
