Paris/Dakar casualty

lucky or what????????????????????????????????

Swedish Dakar competitor Annie Seel got a nasty surprise when she veered off course on her KTM and suddenly found herself riding into a 16-foot deep vertical tomb. We'll let her describe it, "The track split around some ruins, and joined again after. To avoid dust I cut from right track over to the left, across a small rise. Behind the rise a 5m deep tomb opened, 2x3 wide. I rode to slow to jump and to fast to stop. Put brakes on, slide bike to the left and abandon ship. I managed to jump to the left edge while bike tumbled down. I am lucky not to go down cause the walls were impossible to climb."

If she had fallen in, they woulda found her bones in that hole.
She got very lucky.

I suppose she didn't want to stand next to a hole in the middle of nowhere holding a helmet in 900deg heat.
She probably would have gotten help faster if she threw her top in the hole too.

That helmet looked awefully clean compared to the bike.

Props to her for continuing with the race after that spill.

well, the race is like 5000 miles, so it's probably pretty hard to flag every obstacle.
