Yup. One of only two times I've ever been pinned under a bike was GS on snow. I've crashed enough that I've generally gotten the hang of "getting off" the bike in time, even if that's as inelegant as jumping clear. That does, of course, require that you know you're about to crash. In the ice it was "This isn't so bad..." *0.000005 seconds later" "oh I'm on the floor, how do did that happen? Oh bugger the bike is on my leg and I can't get out".
