I was that other contestant heading up the hill (starting around 0:16)...Until this video, I had no idea why I fell down. It happened too quick.
While watching this video, I raised RPM to cross over the rut, rear end slid a little sideways, and I stalled the engine AGAIN
That was my 3rd drop of the day. At that point, I was spent with very little reserve energy left.

couldn't believe I pulled that off on a bike I had all of 10 min of experience on and had never started. (listen for an engine start at 0:09, that's me restarting, the other engines you hear are other contestants headed up the trail.
Yes this was the second challenge for the finalist on day three, and by far the most technical.
