Sorry mate, I didn’t tree you

No amount of training can prepare us for some hazards of the road, as one riding instructor learned. Barry Briggs had a lucky escape when a tree fell on him as he followed a student.  The instructor was riding on the A606 near Upper Broughton, Nottinghamshire, when the tree fell across the entire width of the road. Helmet camera footage shows...

winks rider training,Rutland

shame roadcraft are stealing the limelight, as Barry was working for Winks Rider Training, in Oakham, Rutland. and it was their bike that was damaged. Same old same old though,larger company taking publicity they neither own or deserve. good on him though for keeping it in control. he did not win on the lottery that night though, he did try..

Limelight stealing

@chewsbit Barry gave permission to upload to Roadcraft's site so it gets maximum exposure in as quick a time as possible. Barry said Winks doesn't have a YouTube page so the above statement made sense. At no point does Roadcraft claim this as their own (although the edited footage IS legally owned by them). Any moneys or recognition from this footage has been passed on to Barry. NOTHING in the description on YouTube claims Barry was working for Roadcraft at the time. Barry IS an instructor for Roadcraft and he was trained under the Roadcraft banner. Please get your facts straight before making accusations
