Hi, Rodrigo.

I've put the blame on the air pressure of my tyres. Specially the front tyre.
I shoud have aired down the tyres (off-road basic rule), but I didn't.
And I didn't notice it while the track was dusty.
But when we reached the spot of the picture below, where the pavement was very dry, the bike started to jump like a crazy horse.
I got scared and stopped for a moment. I struggled with my brain to detect the problem, but we failed.
I started riding again and this time the jump was too high. Not exactly high, but It was like when you hit something big in the road. I lost control and fell to my left with the bike.
When we touched the ground, the bike made a 270║ spin and I rolled over myself twice.
The riding gear did it job very well!

This picture was taken a couple weeks after the crash. At this time I took the dirt track on the side of the road and everything went well.
