How To Destroy Your ATV in Seconds [video]

Most of us who ride ATVs have tried to do something on a quad that we probably shouldn’t have. Sometimes we get lucky and all goes well, but other times we crash or get stuck or even get hurt. Usually it’s just a couple of friends that are around to see you get embarrassed, but sometimes – thanks to video cameras and the Internet – the whole world gets to watch you screw up again and again. This is one of those examples.

The video starts off innocently enough – just a guy riding an ATV up a hill. As the climb continues, the front end of the ATV lifts off the ground and the rider scoots off the back and lands on his feet. While the rider is fortunately unhurt, we can’t say the same about his ATV. The quad starts to descend the hill, picking up speed and flipping uncontrollably. It’s shocking how fast it’s going and how high it flies it the air. It’s quite a sight to behold.
