    This guy has ridiculous skill, I've watched loads of his videos and taken from them quite a bit. One thing I've been meaning to build is a circle rut, just haven't got around to it yet, but they look fun!

    I do my best to emulate Watts but I only come close for when it comes to the injury department lol. This is what commitment usally gets me:
    (from Wikipedia):

    Injuries

    Watts has gathered a long list of injuries over his racing career. He incurred multiple broken collar bones starting at the age of 17 when he began racing at higher levels. The injury that affected his career the most would be his repeatedly blown ACL. He first blew his ACL in 1996 at an International Six Days Enduro event in Europe, which he did not have treated until four weeks later. He blew the same ACL shortly after surgery, waiting only four weeks to ride when the doctor's said he should have waited two and a half months. The third time he blew his ACL he followed all of the doctor's instructions and waited the appropriate amount of time. He blew the same ACL a fourth and final time wheeling for a fan and stepping off of the bike. Watts' most recent injury was acquired setting up for a riding school in 2009. Watts broke his back in a "simple, slow-speed fall" fracturing five vertebrae, required six of them to be fused together. It was stated that doctors first assessment was that he would be unable to ride again. Less than half a year later Watts returned on his bike to place 11th at the Moose Run AMA National Hare & Hound in Red Mountain, California.[6]
