WASHINGTON – A biker competing in a race got a rude awakening when he crashed into a deer.
The cyclist was competing in the 2013 Monster Cross and Mountain Bike competition in Virginia when a deer careened across the race route, leaping into the air and straight into the biker’s path.
It appears no one was injured in the incident. But it makes for a pretty good YouTube clip.

The National Park Service has said the fire was likely human caused, but that remains under investigation.
