Mountain Biker Gets Destroyed By An Antelope (Video)

antelope hits mountain bikerI’m not sure I have ever seen a mountain biker from South Africa have success on the world stage.  It probably has something to do with the fact that every time they practice, those damn antelope keep on getting in the way.

That was the case for Team Jeep South Africa’s Evan van der Spuy, who was leveled by a Red Hartebeest antelope while racing through the savannah of KwaZulu-Natal.  Other than a damaged helmet and a stiff neck, both Evan and the antelope appeared to be alright after this nasty looking collision.

It is never fun getting t-boned by an antelope, but I guess it beats getting t-boned by a lion.  Here is a look at the incident, which was captured on camera.
