Russian Cyclist Narrowly Dodges Death After Being Flattened By Lorry

If you’ve ever spent any time on YouTube, you’ll know that Russian roads are not a safe place to be.

As a result, you’d think that any sane Russians would want to arm themselves with the biggest vehicle possible – preferably a tank – to avoid being wiped out by drunk lorry drivers, lunatic risk takers, and narcoleptic maniacs.

However, these brave bikers, thought they’d take on all of the above – on two wheels. Cycling merrily down what looks like a relatively hefty dual carriageway, the lead cyclist moves to the right to pull off.

As the first rider moves over, though, a huge tanker comes barreling past, battering into the cyclist with the horrible sound of metal on metal.  Amazingly, the rider avoids being splattered underneath the tyres, but gets slammed into the Tarmac for his troubles.

Watch the dramatic footage in the video below.
