Don't Try This at Home: Muddy Crash [video]

Sometimes you come across a video and you just don’t know what to say. This is one of those times, but I’ll do my best to string a few words together before the video – available after the jump.

It all starts out well enough. A group of friends is riding ATVs and one of them decides to either jump over or jump into a mud pit on his ATV. Of course, our hero is wearing ideal protection, highlighted by a hoodie and a ball cap. Clearly he’s thought this through.

As you might expect, things don’t go quite according to plan and the rider flies over the handlebars and into the murky depths. He’s pulled out relatively unscathed and manages to find his beloved cap. It’s only after the jump (awesome slow-mo replay included) that we learn the pilot broke his collarbone a few weeks prior playing football. Hopefully this accident won’t affect his ability to continue his work as a neurosurgeon.

Derek Guetter Crashes During Backflip [video]

ATV freestyler Derek Guetter makes his living pulling off tricks on his ATV that most of us wouldn’t even consider. We showed you his first successful backflip on at ATV in a previous post. Unfortunately, we now have to show you his first unsuccessful backflip.

Guetter was in Indianapolis for the Nuclear Cowboyz tour when things didn’t go quite as planned. Guetter was getting the crowd amped up with a variety of tricks before he planned to wow them with his signature backflip. This time, however, Guetter came up short on the landing and crashed. Check out the video after the jump.

More ATVs on Ice [video]

Helping prove that ATV riding is a four-season sport, even in the North, we stumbled across a YouTube gem from February 5 (available after the jump) that shows a group of riders having a blast riding in Pennsylvania in the middle of winter.

Much of the video revolves around a Yamaha Grizzly 700 and a Can-Am Renegade trying to fight up an icy hill – mostly without success. The unfortunate Renegade rider heaps some abuse on his ATV as he smacks it into the back of two different machines when tries to make the slippery climb.
