Default An aussie catching big air

Did any of you catch this over the weekend?

Looks like he lost the front spoiler. Then he had no down force on the front end, so it just went up in the air.

Dude! What happened? I saw this on Fox News and I can't belive the guy survived. Talk about power comlpetely out of control!!!! It looked like the front just folded in on itself.

Wow, I've seen some nasty rail accidents and blow overs, but that was incredible. Glad to see the guy wasn't seriously injured.

Watching the slow motion (about the halfway mark), it does look like the frame gave up and tried to fold in half.

Funny that he didn't mention the Hershey bar that he found in his pants, afterwards... lol
