Rider Run Over during Sidecar Race, Miraculously Unscathed

When it comes to racing, there's good luck days and bad luck days... and watching this video makes us believe there's bad&good luck days, too.
Sidecar racing is a very dangerous sport itself, due tot he very unstable dynamics of the vehicles, so a well-trained passenger used as an active balance element helps keeping the bike on track.

Sometimes things go wrong and the passenger loses grip, but being dragged behind the bike and losing the race is the least of all the fears: it's being run over by the guys approaching from behind which can turn a rather spectacular fun race into a drama.

Well, the guy in this video was unlucky enough to fall from the sidecar and run over at high speed by the next bike. Yet his luck did not run out completely, as we see him coming back on his knees, despite the violent impact which flips the second sidecar.

We bet he was pretty shaken but some bruises and several rib injuries are far better than the rest of the bad things which could have happened.
