The lower the gear, the easier it is! (49/18)
One thing I learned that if you need to bail for whatever reason, just lean to whatever side your legs are on (if you're skidding with bit legs in the same side). Just wait till you can do so by just falling slowly.
Yeah, even the best fail (watch at 0m45s) https://vimeo.com/186141#t=0m45s
It looks like bailing out safely when you skid with one leg to the opposite side of the skidding leg is going to be impossible.
