Spectator Suffers Spectacular Crash Trying To Ride DH World Cup Course
During the finals of the Cairns, Australia World Cup DH Race, Adam Brayton clipped a tree and took a big digger that resulted in a broken leg. While he was being treated, a spectator offered to take his bike back down to the pits. After pushing the bike partially down the mountain, the spectator decided to hop on the bike (despite having no helmet) and ride down the track. Hit play to watch the carnage and drop past the break for another angle.
The event occurred during Steve Peats run, so the Syndicate rider was given a second run. He was only one of two riders to have raced at the venue 18 years ago, and was 7th fastest man down the treacherous track.
