Offbeat Video

This is the hilarious moment that a biking stunt ends up in disaster.

The footage shows a brave biker attempting a steep jump, but he fails to pick up enough speed and ends up face-planting the ground.

According the bikers friend and the man who captured the event on film, this was the cyclist’s unfortunate first and final attempt.

Biker Chris Orton, 32, was left with a broken nose and decided he’d leave it after this final painful attempt.

Liam Mellott, 24, captured the incident on film in Sherwood Pines, Nottinghamshire.

He said: “Basically he had never tried jumping a bike before and had not got enough speed.

“His injuries were a broken nose but everyone found it hilarious afterwards. No more attempts were made after that.”
