Guy Bails on Bike Going 230 MPH, Rolls For About a Week, Only Breaks His Foot
Riding a motorcycle at 200+ miles per hour with just a helmet and some thin racing gear as the only things between you and possible death is pretty impressive. It’s even impressive when you fall off the bike and escape with nothing more than a broken foot and an insane case of road rash.
Chris Matheson, a three-time Australian Top Fuel Motorcycle champion, was competing in the Sydney Dragway’s 2013 Nitro Champs event last week when he lost control of his motorcycle and bailed off. He bounced off the track and rolled for nearly 100 feet before coming to a stop.
He was clocked at 230 miles per hour just before the accident, and hit the ground with insane momentum, so it’s really nothing short of amazing he was able to limp away from this accident.
