Mountain biker Evan Van Der Spuy of Team Jeep South Africa gets hit hard by a wild antelope (or buck, not sure) during a mountain bike race at Albert Falls Dam. He is clearly dazed momentarily but appears to make a relative recovery in time.

    Come to South Africa: Were there is no tarred roads, and antelope-traffic is the main cause of biking casualties. The lion-attacks are not filmed or published, as they tend to be of a more violent nature.

      Really? Antelope-traffic is the main cause of biking casualties? Not getting hit by crazy drivers in mini-taxis? Really?

    That’s what you get for riding a bike, it was transportation when you can’t drive, but really it’s not that fun……

    Dammit, Chive….if you post a video, with audio, then is it not obvious that automatically playing an ad with audio simultaneously will piss people off and become its own deterrent? Come on guys, that's amateur….

    Honestly, I've been Chiving for quite some time, admiring what you fellas have made of yourselves, but it's getting weak with the recycled pics peppered throughout the galleries as of late and now with these audio intrusions (while I'm trying to listen to the audio of a video that you posted, mind you!)

    Keep fucking it up and Chive on….

    missed the Antelope crossing sign

  • thetech2

    I'm wondering why the or what the antelope was running from or if it was challenging the sucka to a fight to prove his manliness to run the herd or was it trying to keep from being a lions lunch I'm not too sure I would be hanging around after it took off like that ,but looking at iot in slomo it looked too intentional I think someone paid the antelope to take him out

    Ah… the famous James Harrison Antelope of South Africa

  • Newsie

    Haha, just saw this on ABC World News! Diane Sawyer said it was an Antelope and apparently they have an excellent sense of smell and hearing but can't see very well (ya think?).
