This one had to hurt. But Nicholi Rogatkin didn’t let it stop him.
After a breakout year in which he earned third place in overall points at the FMB World Tour, Nicholi Rogatkin suffered one of the scariest crashes in Red Bull Rampage history during qualifying rounds on Thursday. Check out the video below.
But the tough-as-nails rider didn’t let it stop him!
As medical personnel attended to him, he stood, wiped himself off and put his helmet back on, blood dripping from his nose. The Boston rider then proceeded to sail over the hugely intimidating canyon gap and followed it up with a backflip at the end of his run.
His unwavering drive to mount up and complete his run surely earned him a new legion of fans, not to mention a truckload of ironman points. Despite not qualifying for Friday’s final, Rogatkin proved he has the heart of a lion.
