The Fijian-flyer Semi Radradra lit up Sixways as he flew up the pitch from deep inside his own 22, and could only be stopped by three Worcester Warriors defenders.
The high tackle was spotted by Wayne Barnes, but the break had led to a lineout deep in Warriors territory.
The Bears then scored from the resulting lineout maul with flanker Dan Thomas forcing the ball down.
From then on, Bristol took control and continued their bid for a home play-off semi-final with a 36-13 bonus-point victory at Worcester Warriors.
Radradra was on the field just 60 minutes but still racked up an incredible 168 metres with ball in hand, wreaking havoc in the Warriors defence in a stunning hour-long display.
However, Bristol coach Pat Lam was furious with the cheap shot and believed it warranted further punishment.
“Those types of cheap shots, with HIA (head injury assessments), he (could have been) out of the game on Tuesday so everyone gets affected by it and it shouldn’t be going on in our game.
“He got up but it is not great.”
