Terrible

This crash happened right infront of me, it's got to be the worst crash I've ever seen! It was scary watching other riders coming on to the straight with him laying out cold in the middle of the track, just hope the poor guy makes a full recovery :(

eurosport

Just watched it back, had it recorded on eurosport, he lost the rear then fell directly under the bike behinds front wheel which must have hit him at well over 120mph, you can see he is totally out cold, with his legs + arms twitching, really doesn't look good......
