Smash! Mountain biker loses handlebar in mid-air

This is the terrifying moment a mountain biker's handlebar came off in mid-air as he attempted a huge jump in Slovenia last month.

"So I was having fun with my friends at the dirt jumps and everything was going great until the last run," the rider told Newsflare.

"So I rolled to the jumps, jumped the first jump and then at the kicker of second jump my bars just snapped," he said.

"Lucky I could walk away with just some scratches on my arm and back. It could have been so much worse," he concluded.
