I know this is a MTB forum but check this miraculous escape. One thing is the rider didn't get killed but the guy behind must have reflexes of a cat to avoid disaster. Happened near Byron Bay - Action starts 34 secs in for those in a hurry.

Bizarre how that alloy strip gets flicked up in just the right way to go in the spokes. Shocked

Hope this guy is recovering!
Looks like the strip got caught on his feet as well and couldn't come out!

Apparently he was back on teh bike the next day. Obviously not *this* bike - it was a write-off.

Here's a screen grab from the vid at about T minus 0.01 before lift-off.

Black Flash had a stick go in his rear wheel at the Christmas ride. Fortunately he got on the brakes before it took out his seat stays.

Very lucky fella on the vid.

I have ridden on roads and been to events on road i thought the person in front usually points out potholes or debri on the side of the road to fellow riders behind .
