When I first saw it I thought it was Quentin moonlighting.

Definitely shouldn't count if he's wearing pads and a helmet. Wuss!

Very sensible to have been wearing protection if there's a chance of not landing properly!!

To me, it looks like he lands it.
The stack happens after when there is a change of gradient for the stop area. May be he should wear a brake pad to slow him down?
