I call fake.

We all know in prehistoric times they rode racers and not mountain bikes.

Mountain bikes did not come in until Roman times, and in many areas, not until the sub-Roman
Indeed. It is my understanding that prehistoric tribes initially utilised bicycles with “cow horn” handlebars before they moved onto the more stereotypical “racer” type! In addition, clickerty clacker spoke accessories also weren’t in general usage until much later, typically in the early to middle Roman era.

And I understood that the unicycle came in with the Normans...

I'm not sure this incident will end up being called an accident. A Kentucky man enters the Grand Canyon National Park, abandons his vehicle, and goes missing along with his high-powered sports motorcycle (a Suzuki GSX-R600) on or about 23 February. A search was initiated soon thereafter. The motorcycle and the man's body were discovered 456 feet below the canyon rim near the trailhead to a hiking and mule trail leading downward into the canyon.

Cleanup team pulls car from river with body in it: YouTube video

Timothy Edward Robinson disappeared from Portland, Oregon on November 27, 2008. He left a suicide note behind saying he was going to drive off a boat ramp.
