If you started watching this video a minute in, you’d think it’s just another shred edit in Queenstown, New Zealand. Nothing incredible. Just a mountain biker having fun on a downhill trail. Watch it from the start and the video takes a whole new meaning.

Six months ago, Remy Morton went huge on a 75-foot Loosefest jump. He went about 25 feet too huge and overshot the landing, taking the jump straight to flat. And most of the impact he absorbed with his head. Fair warning, the footage is brutal, and right at the start of the video. It’s the kind of crash that could kill someone. But Morton is alive. And somehow, only six months later, he’s back and shredding harder than anyone.
