Nic Long has gone head over heels in Rio on his BMX bike.

Coming off the starting ramp, the U.S. rider flipped over on a hill at practice on Monday at the Summer Olympics.

Looked scary. But it appears that Long is OK, and he had a sense of humor about it afterward.

 

 

Long is part of a deep U.S. BMX team looking to get back on the podium after getting shut out four years ago in London. Seeding runs will be held on Wednesday, with the men's quarterfinals starting Thursday.
