The Honda from Heaven

The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is an annual automobile and motorcycle hillclimb to the summit of Pikes Peak in Colorado, USA. The track measures 12.42 miles (19.99 km) over 156 turns, climbing 4,720 ft (1,440 m) from the start at Mile 7 on Pikes Peak Highway, to the finish at 14,110 ft (4,300 m).

This year’s event so far is action-packed.  After riding back down to the base after a practice run, Jeff Grace was taken out by Tom Specht’s Honda CRF450. Take a look at the video below. How would you react in a situation like this?
