Video: Biker films himself missing car and plunging 40ft down cliff

Have your say

A BIKER has released a video of himself plunging 40 feet down a cliff following a near miss on the A57 Snake Pass in the Pennines.

Jack Sanderson, from Knutsford, Cheshire, narrowly missed a car and came off his bike in February. He posted the video on YouTube.



He said: “I was going round the corner and I was going wider and wider and wider. When I saw the first bit of the car I knew I was in trouble. I chose to go off the cliff, rather than hit the car - it was the best thing I could do. I thought that was me dead.

“I opened my eyes at the bottom of the hill and everything was black and white.

“It’s amazing how many people have seen the video. I put it on there as a warning to others as much as anything. I’m a good rider and we often think we are better than we are. If you are going to be stupid things like this will happen.

“I always have a camera on my head, it’s just for fun but also there if anything happens.”
