X-Games Racer Crashes While Celebrating During Final Lap

Kenny Dorset@kdorsetDirector of Social MediaAugust 5, 2013

An X-Games race from the weekend reminds us of one of the most important lessons in sport: It's not over until it's over.

Meghan Rutledge, 18, had the lead going into the final jump of the women’s Moto-X 12-lap race and decided to celebrate with a fist pump.

Unfortunately for Rutledge, that celebration caused her to crash and lose the race. 

Hat tip to Next Impulse Sports for the find.
