The Moto2 race at Le Mans was literally a crash fest with only 30 riders making it to the finish line and the weirdest crash of the race has to be what happened to former MotoGP rider Alex De Angelis.
Xavier Simeon was wildcarding with Holiday Gym Racing Team and the Belgium rider crashed in front of De Angelis and his bike instead of sliding into the gravel trap, remained upright and veered directly into and broadsiding the Sammarinese.
Fortunately the RSM Team Scot rider didn’t suffer any injuries, but De Angelis has had a torrid season so far, crashing out on the first lap at Qatar, crashing out during warm up practice at Jerez and the doctors refusing to let him ride and now being taken out by a ghost bike.
Watch the video, because it you’ll see a Moriwaki bike with a mind of its own.
