A rider at the mountain bike world cup in Cairns, Australia fell and injured himself, then asked a friend to take his bike for him. The buddy then attempted to run the rest of the course himself, with no safety gear whatsoever. Things did not go well.
The pro rider was Adam Brayston, who injured his leg in a fall on the difficult course, the Herald Sun reports. Brayston was hospitalized for his fall, as was his unnamed friend, who totally ate it in the most dramatic fashion further downhill.
The wannabe racer is reportedly in stable condition.
