Amazing... the biker that had the camera didn't even flinch (you can see the head shadow).

Wow! A 130 pound, horned missile! That woulda left a mark! Who thought that biking might be a full contact sport!

Spike I’ve resisted the temptation to ride and do it on roads like that one. With handheld computers biking is too often a contact sport and you couldn’t pay me enough to ride on roads with any regularity.

That's unreal, bummer for the deer. This one has floated around for a number of years, it's from south Africa, I think, during a big race called the Cape Epic where you race in two person teams. My memory may be off but I think that's when it happened. Dang big antelope just completely destroy's the guy. I saw a different video where they discussed that he had a concussion and maybe a few other injuries. Key point... Its not just the metal box drivers we cyclists need to worry about!

My good hunting buddy used to do 30 miles every morning like that but never saw a deer missile!

I have seen a similar airborne phenom on rt. 95 in Maine! That was spectacular, Subaru Forester totalled while the deer flew over three lanes and ran off!
