Racing on the wonderful Island on Man TT can really put a mark on any rider’s career, but in this case we’re talking about a carefully approached crash which, thankfully, didn’t had any consequences apart from a damaged bike and a rebel front wheel.
We all love watching motorcycle races because there are way more entertaining than races on four wheels and the spectacle is much greater, but what comes strongly related to that are the crashes that take place during races. Some of them look very pain full and others can’t even be called crashes as the rider manages to remain on the bike (few indeed), but each one of them manages to cut our breaths. Let’s take a look!
The seven-time world champion has been out of action since fracturing his right hand in three places during a qualifying crash at the Valencia Grand Prix in Spain in November. Clearly rusty after that long layoff, the Moto GP icon Valentino Rossi crashed on the first day of pre-season testing at Malaysia’s Sepang circuit.
