OUCH is right!!!  I would have a hard time just paying attention to the trail and not looking at the gnarly drop off.  That's one of those times you need to wear blinders.
It's not just fun, it's an addiction!

The trail doesn't look too tough...just a little bit of exposure on one side  ;)

If you listen closely, when the guy filming asks "Are you alright?", you can hear the response "Not really!".

on a ride like that, i'd never use clip pedals.   Platforms all the way for me.
