Motorcross Rider Celebrates After Crossing Finish Line, Gets Hit in the Head by Airborne Rider (Video)
You don’t really want to blame anyone for an accident like this, but it’s only human nature to want to figure out who did something wrong here.
That said, Jason Anderson probably should have waited a few more feet before slowing down and celebrating immediately after crossing the finish line. If he had, he probably wouldn’t have taken a very heavy bike to the head as he did.
Here’s the scary clip. Fortunately, he’s ok, though he did miss the next race following the incident:
