Thomas Poole tucks the front wheel of his CRF250 on an REM Glen Helen downhill and gets ejected.
This photo sequence was shot at last Saturday’s REM race at Glen Helen by Dan Alamangos. It shows Thomas Poole (295) endo’ing on the big downhill. After Poole crashes his CRF250 it appears to be magnetically atttracted to Nathan Pietronico’s KX250F (36). Pietronico is a lucky man that the CRF250 came up about four feet short of flattening him by the final photo of the sequence.
Poole’s bike cartwheels up into the air and zeroes in on Nathan Pietronico’s KX250F.
Nathan Pietronico’s begins to set up for the next turn—unaware that he is being stalked from above.
Without ever being knowing what was happening behind him, Nathan Pietronico avoided disaster by a few feet.
