Watch the buck!

Wednesday, 12 October 2011

An overnight internet sensation. I stole the article from here: "Evan van der Spuy, a mountain biker on team Jeep South Africa, was hit by a buck while riding in a race at Albert Falls Dam in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa.
In the video, we hear his team mate, Travis Walker, warning van der Spuy to "watch the buck." And while van der Spuy looks to his right, there's nothing he can do. Moments later...well, you'll see what happens.
According to Global Post, van der Spuy was taken out by a red hartebeest, a type of antelope that can weigh as much as 330 pounds.
Shockingly, the visibly shaken -- and audibly groaning -- van der Spuy didn't suffer any serious injuries, although his helmet was shattered. He tweeted later that he's "stable with nothing more than a very stiff"
