The correct explanation is posted in one of the other threads. The original one, I think.

That's exactly what I was thinking Swede. At least he had the presence to push off from the bike and aim for the sailboat cockpit. I imagine the bike is totalled. I would also suspect that all those steel posts are there to keep motorized vehicles off the dock.

My apologies for a double post. That is the WORST thing you can do on a forum after all.....

Considering the circumstances it was an excellent dismount. I would give it a 7.5.

Ah, that makes sense. The camera work was that of a professional, but the rider didn't seem like any sort of stuntman. They must have been working on a shot for something professionally, and it went wrong.
