Things you don’t see coming…

SOME DAYS are just not your day. Evan van der Spuy, a mountain biker for Team Jeep South Africa, catches more than the wind upside his head. Looking at the state of his helmet afterwards, it’s a miracle he escaped as (relatively) unscathed as he did.

So, yeah, if there is a moral to the story, it’s… um… avoid biking in a manner that might be construed as hostile by animals much larger than you? Or perhaps avoid anything remotely likely to trigger something that big to think “man it would be hilarious if I charged the shit out of that dude”?

Yes. That seems right.

Also, make sure your friends have a camera, so that you can relive the moment until the end of your days. It’d be pretty sweet if my grandad had a video like that from his youth.
