I may have overstated my temerity's degree of mitigation.

Is it easier to make a mistake then?

Also, did anyone even for a second think it might be a female doing the stunt? Of course not. Only guys are that completely bone headed. It's amazing more of us don't die.
I think part of those types of stunts is being able to continue maintaining focus. There is a type of chip carving, I have to find an example, that is meditation. You can see in the carving the ability of the carver to maintain precise focus.

True about the presumption of the rider being male.
