250cc Grand Prix racer Alvaro Baustista won third place last weekend at Brno after announcing a 2-year contract with MotoGP factory team Rizla Suzuki. These are more than enough reasons for a young racer to perform a wheelie during the celebration lap, but Baustista was most likely too enthusiastic for a maneuver that requires so much attention. See the result after the jump.
Just like the picture shows, it is not always recommended to go strong before a corner and this rider has learned its lesson in the bad way. This also shows that the protective tire wall is sometimes useless or even worst as it is built for cars, not for the trouble getting two wheels of this crashed racing Aprilia RS 125. Let’s just hope that behind those tires there was a soft cushion on which landing in your head would be a bit less painful (like that’s a consolation).
