Mountain biker suffers bruising fall, watches bike sail off cliff

A mountain biker attempting to descend a rocky staircase alongside a Peruvian cliff suffered bumps and bruises during a fall, but was fortunate to have been thrown from his bike.

The accompanying footage, shared to Facebook on Sunday by pro rider Geoff Gulevich, shows the unnamed biker catch his front wheel and get pitched over the handlebars, only to watch his bike bounce and careen down the cliffside.

The video has been widely viewed and shared, and the comment thread offers some insight as to what might have gone wrong.

“Not enough speed” and “Get off the front brakes” are among the comments.

Most viewers, however, chose to convey sympathy instead of criticism.

Reads one comment: “I wonder what hurt the most, the ego or losing the bike?”

Gulevich, at the time of this post, had not responded to an inquiry regarding the mountain biker’s identity and precise location of the fall.
