Mountain Biker Gets Taken Out by a DEER! 12

Just riding along when all of a sudden, BAM! At least he didn't get the full T-bone treatment like this guy did!

    powermutant - not in this case - all just rolled past and your DH analogy is poor - that's one guy at crazy speeds whizzing by and I'm sure if it wasn't a race riders would assist , cause we've all been taken out by something one time or another - These guys are practically in slow motion - and how do you know it's a race? Doesn't matter.

    Based on the comments here, everyone stops mid DH race run to check out if a crashed competitor is ok? Hucks 60' road gaps before breakfast, and doesn't own a pair of lurid pyjamas. It's easy enough in an enduro xc type of event to ask if "you're ok" while rollin' past (and you can faintly hear one of the first guys past ask). From my experience these events are inclusive and riders look after each other; caring for the injured and offering mechanical assistance where required.

    It's really heart warming to see such sportsmanship when a fellow competitor get's taken out by a deer.

    Weird. From the other wanker comments, I thought I was over at the Dirtmag website. That happened to me once, but on pavement at speed. We had finished up our Wednesday night trials ride on the UCSC campus and were having a chainless downhill race down the bike path. I was well in the lead, having a lot of mass and a tight tuck, when I saw a deer cross the path ahead of me. I turned my head around to yell to the others to watch out for deer and turned back around just in time to T-bone a full sized doe. I got ejected at speed onto the asphalt and slid and rolled for about thirty feet. When I got up I think I yelled something like "You better be hurtin' deer!" and I think that it was because it was squirming around on it's back like an unlucky turtle before getting up and staggering into the woods. For me, there was considerable road rash involved.

    If it wasn't for the deer, that surely would have been the most boring mountain bike video ever.

    He was attracted to the lycra...

    Wow, that trail looked so gnarly. Nice to see everyone looking out for each other. Dirt roadie wankers...

    And the dirt road bikers don't even ask "are you alright?!" Sorry big "L" in my book for you guys - way to represent!

    I was thinking the same thing! No one stopped?? Not even the guys who clearly saw it happen? Wow. Lame.

    Of course, it's the XC/CX crowd, so no one even bats an eyelid...they all just keep rolling along. Spandex wankers.
