Biker Takes Huge Fall off Cliff, Still Finishes Run

This is insane and should never happen.

I'm not sure how Nicholi Rogatkin was allowed to finish the course after taking this insane fall off a freaking cliff, but the event is called "Red Bull Rampage," so that's probably a partial explanation. Rogatkin says he was a little out of control before reaching a particularly gnarly part of the course and his "front wheel washed out the wrong way and sent me flying down a cliff."

Amazingly, Rogatkin was fine after the crash, save for a bloodied face. Medics immediately checked him out, but he got up quickly on his own and basically walked it off. Even though he admitted "while I was tumbling down this cliff, you know, I was just waiting to go unconscious," Rogatkin still got back on his bike and finished the course, which included still more insane jumps, narrow paths, and a backflip.

It was apparently the biggest crash in the 10-year history of the event, which, holy shit I hope so.
