I don't remember the location but there was a race when RC cartwheeled on a downhill, flew off the bike and was up on his feet waiting for his bike to stop tumbling so he could get back on it.
Why is Ricky the GOAT? There was an outdoor National MX race where it was raining and muddy. The Man was on rails. HE LAPPED THE ENTIRE FIELD! I don't think that has ever happened before or since. He freakin lapped everybody.
