Flies off bike at 230 MPH - Looks like a gust of wind

Hope it's not a repost. Saw it on a new article I was reading and haven't seen a posting about it. So I figured I would share it.

Fixed embed. Had an extra letter. My bad.

"When an athlete is "lucky" to come away from an accident with only a broken ankle, you know it must've been frightening.

And that is surely the case with Australian drag racer Chris Matheson. During the Sydney Dragway’s 2013 Nitro Champs event, Matheson was speeding at around 230 miles per hour when he took a nasty tumble off his bike.

Matheson, a former Australian National Drag Racing Association (ANDRA) Top Bike champion, makes it one quarter of the way through his run when he appears to be knocked off his bike by the force of the wind.

He rolls on the ground for what appears to be about 100 feet before finally coming to a stop. And according to reports, he walked away with only a broken ankle along with some bumps and bruises. "

That's a top fuel bike. The front brake and back brake are on the handle bars. They open there hand to grab the brake and get blown off. I don't understand why these guys don't run more of a fairing running 230 mph. I have seen this many times.

Not really. Sit up from a tuck at 180. Its like poping a chute. Lots and lots of drag instantly created. I can imagine its easy to get pulled off at those speeds
