All I seen was a blur just before contact, I think it was about 6 inches long by about 1 inch x 1 inch. It hit my sunglasses and nose at the same time. Chipped my shatterproof glasses and opened up my nose. It hit my right side, I was gesturing to my riding friend who was on my left that I need to pull over. He was gesturing back what the f... for? as we had only just got back on the road. I turned my head so he could see the blood pouring down face, he stopped questioning me then haha.
I've seen that video and a few others of people getting their trash thrown back into their car. Satisfying.

I once dodged a 2x4 about 4 feet long that got kicked up by a semi as we were traveling about 70 mph. I ducked and it sailed over my head. I don't think my fullface would have helped much if I had caught that. It probably wasn't going to hit me but it felt frickin close.

A small log rolled out of a truck I was behind and my mountain biking skills kicked in and I was able to roll over it. Luckily we were going slow and the log was only about 3 inches.
