"There I Was, Minding My Own Business, When WHAM! He Came Outta Nowhere, I Tell Ya!"

In what appears to be a case of demonic possession, a motorcycle jettisons its rider, stays on its wheels, and spears a hapless Alex de Angelis during the Moto2 race at Le Mans yesterday. It's a good thing there's a video of the incident, because no one in the pits would have believed de Angelis's story otherwise. "You crashed why? Yeah, right..."

UPDATE: The video was taken down. Damn. Trust us, it was spectacular.

UPDATED UPDATE: Found it again. Watch it now, before it goes away again. Never mind.


  1. Where's the video?

  2. Agreed, damn bad it's been taken off the web. Watched it on CGM a couple of nights ago. It was a dozey. Talk about bad luck.

    Interestingly, the Speed coverage of the race didn't include any video footage and the commentators made no mention of it.
