Misano MotoGP: Shoya Tomizawa dies after Moto2 accident

Shoya Tomizawa, winner of the first ever Moto2 race in Qatar back in April, has died from injuries he suffered in a crash during the Misano Grand Prix today. The Japanese rider was fighting in the lead group when he lost control in fourth place approaching the super-fast back straight section on lap 12. The 19-year-old was struck by Italian rider Alex...

Rip shoya you will be sadly missed by all. The way scott and shoya were heaped onto the stretchers were terrible. How ever had the marshals be given the red flag they could and would have been more carefull. Hang your heads in shame dorna.

Dark ages

The death of Shoya was heart breaking. What was equally heart breaking was the complete bunch of morons track side who not only did not red flag the race when even a trained chimp could see that the life threatening crash would need time to sort out. Then the pure lack of concern with the way they put sorry dashed Shoya and Scott on the stretchers then they dropped Shoya on the stretcher. I was disgusted with the behaviour of the Italian fans and the rather Shady way they happened to announce the death right after the MotoGP race. There should be a full investigation by an independent body to see if the marshals actions added to Shoyas death. Motorcycle racing is a love of mine but when a rider gets badly wounded it would not matter if they have to abandon the rest of the days racing if it could make a difference to the riders health. Rip Shoya.

Sad day for moto GP

A very sad day today not only for the death of a talented rider but also for the shocking way the accident was dealt with. It was clear that it was a massive accident. The red flag should have been shown at once. Instead we first saw Scott Redding being bundled onto to a strecher, then seeing Shoya being dropped, having no doubt being bundled onto to the strecher in the same fashion as S.R. Dorna and the Marshalls should be facing prosecution for such shameful acts.All for TV scedules. My condonlences to the family of Shoya Tomizawa.

i watched in horror as tomizawa lost control and was hit by de angelis and scott redding and the race should have been stopped because he never moved after being hit and the way that he was scooped up by the marshals was shocking to watch, race should have been stopped and the medics should have been on the scene to attend to him.

total disgrace

Just watched the moto 2 race upto tragic accident in which Tomizawa was fatally injured. the way the incident was dealt with was disgracefull, a definate red flag. 1st rule of first aid assess before any movement, to see the marshall sling people onto stretchers and run off track dropping stretchers etc. and possibly leading to even more pain and suffering for riders.  I remember the way they moved Rainey after his accident and we know how he now is. Come on dorna this should never happen in this day and age, its sickening to see it still going on in some countries.
