Editor’s note: On weekdays from Dec. 1 to Dec. 16, FOX Sports will be counting down the 12 wildest rides of 2016.

Monster Energy Supercross rider Jason Anderson was involved in a scary incident back in September.

Anderson had just won the second race of the Motocross of Nations on Sunday, Sept. 25, to put USA into the lead. However, as he was celebrating his victory after crossing the line, he was hit from behind by a lapped rider’s bike.

While Anderson escaped without injury, he was taken to a local hospital and thus missed the third and final race of the event. France ended up being the overall winners.
