Craig Jones RIP, January 16, 1985 – August 4, 2008

Following his serious crash during the Brands Hatch World Supersport race on Sunday August 3, Craig Jones has tragically lost his life.

Craig Jones

We all appreciate that Craig was doing what most of us love to do, we all know the unfortunate pitfalls of bike riding, its a fine line between excitement and tradegy. Craig was a brilliant young talent and will be sadly missed. I'm sure I speak for bikers around the UK in offering our deepest condolances to Craigs family, we are stunned and deeply sadened.

Pitty!

a racing incident, a tragic one never the less, but one all the same, Pitty dont listen to the w*nkers of the media, get back on and ride son, Jonsey will not forgive you if you dont,and when you win the next race you can dedicate it to one of the surest possibilities of a world champion at WSS Britain ever had, you will be feeling sh*te at the moment,we all are, but you do have a hell of alot of support from the fans,your family, Craigs family i am sure, and of course your team, get stuck in fella!

Went out in style

This week we sadly lost a great star, BUT well done Craig. In front of your home crowd, on the world circuit, you led the race, set the lap record, and took a worthy second place. Yes we will miss you, but you gave us a race to remember you by.

Never a dull moment

Great racer, great entertainment, great loss. Whoever even mentions this had anything to do with Pitt is wrong. He did nothing wrong, he was racing just like Jonesy and it could have easily been any one of them, its a dangerous sport and hobby we all know that. Don't stop Andrew, Craig would never want that!! Craig died living what most motorcyclists would consider a dream, his dream. The only way to have lived. My condolences to Craigs family and friends. We all feel the loss.

deeply saddened

I was deeply saddened to hear the news of Craig Jones this morning. First of all I would like to offer my heart felt condolences to his family and friends. I was watching the race on sunday with a friend and we were thrilled by his brave riding style whilst challenging Rea, Pitt, and Harms for the lead untill it all went tragically wrong. The sport has lost a great young tallent, and will be sorely missed by the paddock and his army of fans.

Craig was a great motorcycle racer, sadly lost to a sport he loved. I will surely miss his exciting style and many others will too. Deepest regards to all his family and friends at this hardest of times.

Sad day

I woke to the news this morning and was shocked, these guys don't die, they slide and bounce, get knocked about and are back racing in a couple of weeks. It goes to show the dangers these guys face to follow their chosen sport, and , to entertain us. My deepest sympathy goes to Craigs family, friends and team.
