Stunning fortune. Did you see the blinkers on the car. Not until the driver was beginning the lane change. Terrible driving courtesy. And the cyclist
zipping in and out like that. Jerk,,,luck lucky jerk.
I saw this earlier today and had to watch it twice. What also amazed me, besides the obvious, was that the car driver did not slam on his/her brakes
and send the luckiest rider ever onto the asphalt. If this had not been on video, nobody would have believed it!
Not a ninja.
Most bikes have the petrol tank designed so that the rider gets launched in a situation like this. Take a look at a bike next time you get chance. The
seat will be about 9 inches lower than the petrol tank. The only way the rider can get past the tank is by going up up and away.
Friend of mine did much the same thing and he spent three days with a pipe up his willy because he crushed as he hit the tank and got launched. In the
case of the rider in the op they'll probably need to stitch his nuts back on!
Did anyone else clock the crucifix very briefly appear as the guy lands on the roof of the car? Open the video in the tube and slow it down to 0.25 in
the settings, watch from about 20 seconds in and keep an eye on the left,
