VIDEO: Mattias Skjelmose flies over wall into ravine at Volta a Catalunya

21-year-old Skjelmose said he must have had a guardian angel watching over him when he crashed over a roadside wall plunging into a ravine on stage 2 of Volta a Catalunya last week.

He was struck and by another rider, which changed his direction on a mountain descent, catapulting him over the curbside wall but and falling over the side.

He quickly scrambled back up to the road and insisted on continuing in the race, telling medics and officials who stopped to help him: “I’m okay, I’m okay. Just get me a new bike!”

After the race, he said he felt fortunate to emerge from the incident with no injuries, “Me and Antwan Tolhoek were in a pretty good position just behind UAE on the downhill and then somebody made a braking mistake and unfortunately, I was on the outside, and on my outside there was a cliff where I ended.  Luckily, I did not hurt myself so bad, and I came pretty fast back on the bike and Antwan helped me back to the bunch.”
