With some serious force, Poor girl had her back to the coarse, and I caught a rock which pitched me right over a burn, bout 10-15 feet Oh SHi.. and Wham....... She wasnt ont eh actual coarse, so its not her fault, but just part of being at the races. Got to be on your toes
I got hit after I crashed at a race last year. I plowed through a berm and knocked the air out of myself. I was off the course but still behind the berm (about 5-10 feet). As I was regaining my breath I turned around to move my bike further away from the berm and someone hit me from behind sending us both 20-30 feet down the hill. The berm was right before a very fast downhill so the guy hit me doing at least 20mph. I had a gnarly bruised lower back and a sprained wrist.
Tons of people saw it but nobody got pictures or video. I was pretty bummed. I hope someone got it for you.
