Dorna said it wouldn’t release this video due to the shear violence of the crash Alex de Angelis experienced during warm up for the Moto2 race at Jerez last Sunday, but copies have leaked to the web. What starts as a mild highside results in an end-over-end somersault as his body and the bike dig into the gravel trap. Watching de Angelis’s head pummeled into the ground over and over, it’s amazing to think that de Angelis lived, but he actually walked away with hardly a scratch. He actually wanted to participate in the race, but despite finding nothing wrong with the RSM Team Scot rider, circuit doctors were so shocked by the crash they ordered him not to ride. >
Thanks for the tip, Sasha.
