[ 0 ] October 11, 2011 | Alison Adey

Mountain biker Evan van der Spuy got the shock of his life when an antelope crashed into him during a race in South Africa.

The cyclist was competing in the Time Freight MTB Express at Albert Falls Dam when a red hartebeest charged across the plain and knocked him to the ground.

Footage of the incident was caught on camera by fellow cyclist Travis Walker, who was recording the race for a marketing company sponsoring the event.

Fortunately, Evan, 17, didn’t suffer any serious injuries apart from mild concussion and whiplash. He was treated in hospital and released the next day. SEE VIDEO HERE
