A funny video of a BMX rider tackling trail jumps has gone viral after he disappeared out of shot.

Ian Kilpatrick was riding through Pocahontas State Park in Chesterfield, Virginia, USA, on June 30 when he took off from one of the sand ramps.

After landing, the 24-year-old vanished behind the next ramp with just a plume of dust rising into the air.

The video has gained more than 1.5million views in the four days since the 24-year-old uploaded it to YouTube.

Ian said: “It happened so fast, but while in the air, I knew I wasn’t going to land it, and I just thought ‘this is going to hurt’.

“I cut up my arm pretty bad and the left side of my body is all bruised.”
