Watch a racer fake passing out, mid-race


Category: Dailies

After lowsiding during a very wet race in Brazil, Marlinton dos Reis Teixeira was unable to get his bike restarted. DNF and lose any potential points or try something, anything to get the race red flagged and restarted? A man with a plan, Marlinton literally leaps across the track in order to perform the world’s least convincing fake faint, while helpfully removing himself from the racing line. The unintentional comedy has to be seen to be believed.

Despite Marlinton's cunning plan, race officials soon caught on to the fake faint and are debating banning him from the series all together.

Thanks for the tip, Stephen.
