This guy shooting video of cyclo-cross race was nearly taken out by a nasty crash


Two cyclists competing in the Soudal Classics Cyclo-Cross in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium, over the weekend were involved in a nasty obstacle-induced crash, but fortunately both quickly popped back up and continued on with their race. Cyclist Jon Cannings was nearly taken out by a flying bike as he shot video of a cyclist bunny hopping a barrier and flipping over the next as he nose-wheelied into the board.

A second racer was caught up in the chaos and flipped forward off his own bike after making contact with the the first rider. Cyclo-cross is wild.
