Putting it down to experience is going to be the order of the day I feel, it's certainly easier to be pragmatic about these things after a large rum and coke! Do excuse my effing and jeffing in the video by the way, the adrenaline got the better of me :oops:

Just watched the vid. Lucky escape on your part, potential there for it to have been a lot worse. Colleague of mine dealt with one like that a while back where the 'victim' rider died. His grips we're in poor state, no end plugs and penetrate his chest. Bled out before Ambo could get to him.

Considering his inattentiveness nearly killed you he's a gobby little scrote.

Yikes! It could indeed have been far worse, luckily for the gobby little scrote he's likely only got a decent bruise from trapping his leg against the frame and a twisted wheel/frame (you can just make out on the slow motion that I hit him with enough force to rip out his rear wheel) :twisted:

Well, if you can't get him for dangerous riding, maybe you can get him nailed for being a meth addict! :lol:
