Just moments before the brutal stack, the former Family Feud host took a photo of himself and his friend riding along on their bicycles.
‘No joke, two mins after this photo we had a huge stack doing wheelies and clipping handlebars. D**kheads,’ Denyer wrote in the caption.
‘Putting in the big yards for the Bathurst 12 Hour this weekend. Doing a lot of riding. New to it. As our crash proves.’
