Deer vs. Roadie = Ouch 9

A deer tries to the thread the needle and ruins a downhill blitz of Mt. Lemmon in Arizona for H8ter (that's his YouTube channel name). He says, "Copyright H8terProduction. Mt. Lemmon, AZ around mile marker 17. The end result is a shattered bicycle, some road rash, and a broken foot. You can see my back wheel in the video, we were both very lucky it wasn’t worse. @theracingapparel @mellowvelobikes"

Vital tester, Brian Buell had a close call with a deer during our Downhill Bike Test Sessions this summer in Angel Fire, New Mexico. The animal sprinted across the trail a few feet in front of Brian, but thankfully there was no contact, just fuzzy, warm feelings of cuteness.

probably not given the impact. sad for biker and deer. easier prey for a cougar most likely.

I've done that. It was around dusk after a weekly Wednesday trials ride at UCSC. We were racing down the bike path and I was in the lead when a deer jumped an orange construction fence in front of me. I didn't hit that one, but turned around to yell to my friends to watch out for deer. Just as I turned back around and back into my tuck, a second deer jumped in front of me and I hit it full speed right in the middle like H8ter. Nothing broken, but a ton of road rash including pretty much down to the bone on my left forearm.
