Oh Sh*t! This Dirt Biker Was Inches Away From Death

Heart-pounding GoPro footage of a very near miss

You’ve probably seen our regular How Not To Die videos, where we ask action sports pro’s their top tips for staying safe. At some point, one of them really should say “watch out for open mine shafts when dirt biking“.

Granted, it’s pretty specific, but that’s almost what introduced this dude to the Grim Reaper. These guys were riding through snowy forrest land when, all of a sudden, the lead rider stops just a few heart-pounding inches away for the gaping chasm.

It goes without saying that this could have ended much, much worse than it did. Whatever your action sport, be safe out there, and know your terrain. And if you don’t, at least have the decency to wear a GoPro so we can see the videos.
