A HOLE LOT OF HURT AHEAD: A scooter rider may just be the worst biker in China following a hilarious video posted on YouTube. Here you can see the rider moments before plunging into a giant hole on the road.

Unfortunately, regardless of your mode of transport, crashing is an occupational hazard.

If, however, you manage more than three crashes in succession it may be time to give up your licence and take a bus.

A video posted on YouTube shows what could be the worst rider we’ve seen. The video shows the hilarious antics of a scooter rider in China.


The rider can be seen hitting four vehicles in succession before tumbling into a giant hole. The first crash sees the rider hit a microbus before moving on to plant his bike into a car. The third collision is with another scooter and the fourth with a truck.

Hilarity ensues at the end as the rider rides off yet again - straight into the water-filled hole.

YouTube commenters had some choice, er, comments...

Truth5eeker21 said: "Hours later, he fell out of a hole in Mexico... then crashed into a taxi."

crislister1959 said: "Serves him right, bloody idiot. He belongs down that hole"

Anthony Campos said: "Well, I guess this proves that stereotype correct... that mopeds can be sold to anyone in China."

Wheels24 says: "Take more water with it, sunshine."
