Stupid deer....

They are the motorcycling equivalent of a sniper. F your day up out of nowhere.

I'll let somebody else dig up the video, but the short story is:

guy riding in some sort of time trial/race thing hits the deer, throws down, gets back up almost instantly, lifts up the bike, and continues on his merry way.

Give that deer some love. Oh, wait... some inmates might take that literally.

F$cking hate deer

The race was RallyWV 2012 http://www.rallywv.com/

"NASA Rally Sport RallyMoto races are 150+ mile tests of endurance, speed, and navigation. The SandBlast, RallyWV and Black River Stages are the few point-to-point stage rallies in the US that allow both RallyMoto (motorcycles) and Rally cars. "http://www.nasarallysport.com/main/

The Thread - http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...hlight=rallywv

The whole stage video with slo-mo of the deer - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5MFLGuic3c

What an off-road stage looks like (Check out the pass at 5:15) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7M1umZweOok
