Antelope hits a Mountain Biker

Young cyclists are always warned to wear helmets when pedalling around on their bikes. But a mountain biker taking part in a race near Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, had reason to be doubly thankful for his after he was sent flying by a charging antelope.

Evan van der Spuy was taking part in the Time Freight MTB Express Mountain race in Albert Falls Resort and Game Reserve when he was hit by the male Red Hartebees at high speed. Mr van der Spuy was thrown clear of his bike and landed in a crumpled heap as the buck ran off.

The amazing collision was captured by fellow mountain biker Travis Walker, who had a camera strapped to his bike as he was working for a marketing company sponsoring the event.
