Nice work from the motor bike, taking out two then skulking off.

Dude is lucky the car was there to stop him. He would have been off the side of that road and who knows where down the side of the mountain. He was coming in just a tad too hot….

What was he thinking, trying to pull a nose wheelie on that corner?

Apparently there was a big drop over the edge. No idea what he was thinking going into that corner that fast. You gotta wonder if maybe he had cooked his brakes leading to that corner. Looks to me like the two that collided with the motorcycle were going too fast as well. Hard to say for sure though.

Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.

Too bad the dude in the Panamera didn't do a shoulder check, eh?

Like I said before, him hitting that car probably saved his life. If he hadnt had some sort of a backstop, he would have sailed right through that corner and over the cliff. I cant figure out how he was going so fast and not seeing the corner? Must have lost his brakes…

Youtube comments say it is a cliff with boulders and trees in the runout . Check the Faux News link I posted to see another angle. He came outta the corner above hot as a pistol! No idea why though…

I wonder if road signs warning about the curve with speed advisory was missing? There is no good reason that I can see for him to be going so fast. Was a car in the way further back that blocked his view? Could he not see cars and riders ahead slowing and turning? Looks to me like he started braking way way too late, skidded the rear and let go, and started going over the bars as he approached the car before he collided which suggests that he had brakes. I think he wasn't paying attention. Having a Froome moment looking at his stem?

I love the Fox News reporter:
"Officials say neither the driver or the cyclist were to blame in the incident"

ACT OF GOD
