‘Oh Crap’ Monday: The First Barrel

Oh, the dreaded barrel knock.

Barrel racing is a sport of speed and accuracy, so there almost is nothing worse than knocking a barrel. Between adding five seconds to your run and the pain that can come with smacking your shin against a giant metal can, this certainly is an oh crap moment for any barrel racer. And when it’s the first barrel, it’s even worse, because you know your run is shot from the get go.

This rider’s oh crap face says all that and more.
