ANIMATED: Caleb Moore Almost Follows In His Brother's Footsteps

In the semifinal round of snowmobile freestyle at Winter X, Colten Moore lost his sled. He didn't just lose his sled, though -- he was upside-down in the midst of a 120-foot just when he missed a grab. It was a scary moment, but Moore was fine and still advanced to the finals, despite the nasty crash.

His older brother, Caleb, is also one heck of a snowmobiler, and ran into a little trouble himself in the finals. By a little bit, I mean he almost did the exact same thing as his brother, but he managed to save it. Watch as the elder Moore misses his grab, then scrambles to find the sled, narrowly averting disaster.

That wasn't planned. Nobody is insane enough to plan a trick like that. Nice save from the fearless man, though.
