    So what happens after they crash? Does the one guy who didn't fall just keep going around casually since he has no more competition?

    The rider is probobly lucky he fell as he did. It looks like he fell flat, which is why his jaw and nose took a lot of it but not much else (they tend to stick out if you fall perfectly flat). Otherwise he probobly would've been killed. I mean, it was a 30 foot fall. A fall from 6 feet can be fatal.

    And I hate to say this, but I wonder if the bikes survived or not?

    I'm glad no one was permanently injured though.
