    Video: Deer Tackles Cyclist During Mountain Race

    This video just goes to show that not only motorists should keep an eye on the shoulder, bicyclists should too. According to his blog, Jeff Plassman was 15 minutes into the 2nd annual Monster Cross Race when a deer ran into his path and kicked him off his bike. Plassman estimates that the deer was running at about 30 mph at the time. No serious injuries resulted from the encounter however, and the cyclist remains amused.

    It’s not every day that a whitetail jump-kicks you.
