Rally Moto Deer Collision - What to do if you crash during a race...
 
Just wanted to share one of the many spectacular things that happened at my trip to race Rally WV 2012 at Snowshoe Mountain WV this past weekend. Check out the whole race thread
here.


And my spectacular deer encounter here:

Disclamer: This is a closed road with race staff watching every point of entry to prevent any traffic. I don't condone crossing the yellows when riding open roads.

You made that look damn near nonchalant, dude! Holy hell!

No major injuries, I hope?

I guess I should report that due to ATGATT philosophy I came away without even a bruise. Hard shell knee guards and a full armor top under the jacket kept me unbroken.

I was still on the clock for that stage of the rally so I wanted to get to the finish ASAP. I would have pushed it to the finish if I had to. I bet some spectators would have joined in since there was only like 1/4 mile left.

That's a lot of beef jerky left behind.

Glad you're OK..

Holy shit!

If a big bug hits my helmet I stop for longer than that.

I've got to toughen up a bit.. It took me longer to get up from my CPU monitor after watching that the it took for you to get going again !!!
Glad you are OK!!!

I'm sure it wasn't funny at the time, for you, but I can't help laughing every time I watch that. F*ck, that was awesome. You never skipped a beat.

Awesome....your vid is going slightly viral on Facebook.
Did the deer run off?

No comments about crossing a double yellow and going around a curve in an oncoming lane! :eek1

That was an awesome video nonetheless.. It should be captioned " like a boss" when you tore ass away! :rofl

:eek1
I'm kind of lost for words.... Getting over that line must have been really, really important!

Glad your OK.
