I saw that on FB yesterday also.
the elk or whatever bee lined him but good....

I was a bit shocked the driver of the car right behind him was awake enough to avoid him when he went down.

Jeebus that had to feel like getting blindsided by a DE from the NFL.
Glad he was able to walk away

He saw it coming, too. Did you see the bike wiggle right before the elk appeared?

I had to replay that several times before I picked up on that.


He seemed to have almost 1 second's worth of warning....

he tried to duck his head, just about 1/2 helmet's worth.
