Info Video: Rally motorcyclist hits deer, shrugs it off, keeps going

Filed under: Motorsports, Safety, Videos, Motorcycle


Motorcyclists are a different breed, and that's especially so with anyone willing to throw a leg over a two wheeler in sanctioned competition. Need proof? Check out the video we've pasted below.

During the Rally West Virginia, a two-wheeled competitor came in unfortunate contact with a four-legged animal. The impact happened after over 300 miles of closed-course riding on the very last stage.

So, race over, then? Not even close.

Our intrepid rider takes one look back at the deer that stopped him in his tracks, seeing it get up and remove itself under its own power, then remounts his trusty orange steed to finish the race. Want to see the craziness for yourself? Check out the helmet cam video below.

Wow, that looks like it had to hurt or maybe he just wasn't going that fast, still pretty crazy.
