Apparently it’s a practice footage of Steve Romaniuk. Another Rampage competitor. I’m not sure how these guys survive this kind of mountain bike crashes.

5# BMX Stunt Face Crash


This one sends shivers down my spine. He was out cold for 2 minutes and a little bit confused for the next 48 hours but alive.

4# Faceplant of Death


The only explanation for this guy coming out of this mtb accident alive or not crippled is….God must love mountain biking.

Thank god there was no crash here. It would probably end the Rampage competition before the finals. Here’s Brendan Fairclough’s and probably not the first one of his near death experiences.
