Man, I'm amazed that video is now on YouTube! That one is at least 7 years old! I've seen more than one save like that during races - one happened right in front of me. Sometimes you just get lucky but sometimes you don't - when I shattered my right leg in 2006 it was pretty much the same thing, I was up in the air still holding on, thinking I could save it, and when I came down the bike decided to snap my leg then crush it. I doubt I'll ever try to save a high-side again :bawl: I still have one more surgery to go, next month.....See! times do change.
You never know when you've got it. (Luck that is.)
I think this guy should have played the lotto that day.
