Rhino Flips Over and Gets Quite a Bashing

It looks like hill-climbing aboard SxS machinery requires riders to be really fast taking decisions, especially when things go wrong and it's back to the foot of the hill time.
There are only two ways for the road back: rubber side down, or flippity-flip, with the latter obviously not exactly being the best choice.

However, when the going gets tough, it appears like riders should be just as quick to shift into reverse as they are skilled battling their way up the slopes. Releasing the brakes to allow the rear to roll down the hill and bring the front end back on the ground seemed to be the least this Yamaha Rhino rider could have done.

His fellows shout at him to shift into reverse, but given the highly-tensioned moment, we cannot really blame the guy. Now, looking at how powerful the impact was, we're quite glad he was smart and wore a helmet.

During the slow-motion part, one can see the rider hitting his head really hard against the roll cage and him not wearing headgear would have most likely meant severe injuries, or worse. We guess he now knows way more about hill climbing and what to do when things go wrong.
