Thanks, I totally agree. I was even thinking a few minutes before the crash about the need to just ride through if I hit a soft spot or ruts, but somehow it didn't work out with this particular rut. I must have either turned or hit the front brake, although it happened so fast I'm not really sure. I really don't think I hit the brake but I remember right before going down that the bike was wobbling left/right and eventually the front tire slipped, so I must have jerked the bars to try and fight the pull of the rut sending everything out of control.
