Mountain Biker KO'ed by Crazy Red Hartebeest Buck

Imagine you're mountain biking in the South African plains looking all professional in your sponsored man tights, and all of the sudden a Red Hartebeest buck crashes into your rig and turns your body and bike into roadkill. Not a pleasant thought, but that's exactly what was caught on tape in this amazing video posted just two days ago on Youtube.

KwaZulu-Natal mountain biker Evan van der Spuy was racing near Albert Falls Dam, South Africa when he took this now famous spill, and it just so happened that  his teammate Travis Walker caught the scene on his GoPro Camera. The animal shown is a red hartebeest--a large, reddish-fawn antelope that weighs on average about 250 pounds--that's been nicknamed quite lovingly "Buck Norris" for its hardcore jumping ability. The video has become an internet sensation after being posted on Monday and currently has raked in over 6 million views on Youtube.

Best one sentence description of this video wins a......well, for now we can only offer our sincerest admiration. Enjoy.
