Horrendous snow mobile crash
« on: November 15, 2011, 07:31:44 pm »
Wasn't sure where to put this but wanted to share.  For all of those of us who have crashed a moto on pavement, check out this poor Frenchman and his failed attempt to reach the top of a mountain and his resulting tumble down the snow, both ahead of and chasing behind his machine.

I have to wonder about the guy who thought he could catch the sled.

That was my thought as well.  Am also wondering about the rider who did finally stop and watch his sled careening down the mountain, nearly hit him, and then followed it down, passed it and it nearly fell on him again.  Probably should get the Moron award, with runner up the individual who tried to stop it tumbling farther down the slope.

Wait 'till the guy finds out his fob fell out of his pocket and is lost somewhere in the snow....

That's probably not covered under warranty.

I bet it was a long walk back to base camp. He's lucky he didn't hit the rock walls. He might have broken his helmet cam, along with his neck.

So, how does guy explain that to his wife?
