It almost appears like the antelope was targeting this guy.

That'll wake a guy up.

It wasn't aiming at the biker. They are a prey animal. It was trying to jump to clear the biker but didn't have time to react properly.

it looked like the biker saw it coming, but didnt know how to react properly. maybe it was like on a street when someone comes towards you, you turn to the left and the guy tries to do avoid bumping into you and does the same.

Would it happen to be mating season for the hartebeast in that area? If so, it could have considered biker guy a challenger to his females.

I thought about that but I doubt it. There is generally a bit more of a ritual than that. Given the speed that all involved were approaching the area I doubt the animal had a chance to comprehend what was happening. I volunteer as a wildlife rehabber and spend most of my free time in the bush. This looks like a typical startled ungulate but that is just my opinion.

Probably saw him as a territorial threat... Yeah, it could have easily gone around him, so it did seem to single him out. Kudos to the camera guy though...wow, hehe...
