Rea's 120mph crash in pictures

During Friday Free at Portimao, 23 year old Jonathan Rea suffered a massive high side onboard his Hannspree Ten Kate Honda. Rea amazingly walked away from the crash and went on to secure his first podium of the season in the opening race on Sunday.

I Hoped

He'd be on it -  but consistant this year ... IMO a world champ possibility....

I hope Ten Kate work the bugs out that bike!

Wild ride

That looks like a very scary high speed crash - and the description above makes it sound like an unusual one.  I hope that Rea's loss of confidence is quickly overcome and he can ride hard again.  Must be very scary when the electronics setup of the bike changes and the result can only be confirmed when riding at 100mph+!  Balls of steel the lot of them.

4th pic crash

On the 4th pic, it appears that he's looking at his sponsor sticker on the swingarm. It reads "FEBUR".

 

Perhaps it should read "FUBAR".............. LOL
