Almost Everyone Crashed In One Olympic BMX Race

There was a bit of trouble in the BMX quarterfinals — yes, BMX is an Olympic sport. The thing about BMX? You have to NOT fall off your bike.

1. Here’s the video. The crash appears to start when one rider clips the other’s back wheel, and almost everyone else rides into them.

2. Then they go straight into the wall.

3. (Here it is from behind.)

4. Then gravity takes over.

5. Then everyone wanders around like lost toddlers looking for their bikes.

6. Oh, and when I said ALMOST everyone crashed? Yeah. The rider in first escaped unscathed, and he had a pretty easy time cruising to the finish.
