Enduro rider has lucky escape from raging river

This gives a new meaning to the term 'flooded engine'

RIVER crossings. They take skill, guts and a whole lotta gas.

This WR250 rider came up short on all three accounts, losing momentum in the middle of a raging Spanish torrent. 

As the water catches the wheels, it drags the bike on to its side and downstream. 

The hapless rider hangs on, unable to find any traction to heave the bike back upright. 

Thankfully, friends are on hand to pull the bike and rider from the river, with hopefully only his pride damaged.
