"The accompanying footage shows competitor Ryan Vitale racing downhill at 45 mph before being tackled by a deer charging across the road. "

"The incident occurred just as Vitale and his fellow competitors were approaching the most daunting feature on the course, a 180-degree turn called "The Gooch." Miraculously, Vitale was uninjured (save for scrapes and bruises) and the deer seemed OK. It's the same deer that appears at the end of the video, after the switchback turn. "
