Near the end of the first lap, I came around a rutted turn that also had a bit of a lip on it, got a little hot on the gas, and wheelied a bit. I was unable to reel it back in before going off-course and into a tree plastered with course markers. And of course, I did this near the end of the first lap near scoring, so there were a lot of people around to witness this, ah, moment of weakness on my part. One lady even screamed a little as I had my close encounter. You will notice from the video that no one came rushing to help or see if I was OK.

And this would be the reason why I don't run my stock headlight on my bike during races. This probably would have been a $90 headlight replacement if I had.
