Well, this didn't quite go as planned.
During the Moto Enduro X race, a brand new event at X Games 17, according to the LA Times, more than half the riders fell off their bikes, with many doing so multiple times.
The reason they fell off, and mind you this is just a guess, is likely because motorcycles generally aren't meant to travel over large tree logs and jagged rocks.
One racer, Tarah Geiger, completely wiped out within the first 100 feet of the race still finished second.
Maria Forsberg ultimately won the race and non-coincidentally was one of the only riders to stay on her bike the entire time.
