      If you look at that in slow-motion, something really weird happens. It looks like as he crouches his head, you can see something stick up which looks like it catches the wind and flips the bike.

      It almost looks like it's his leathers, like the chest zip has let go so they're loose enough for air to get in at the back of his neck. You can really see them baloon out, up and over his head. But once you seen him on the ground, they're fine. At about 5 seconds, go through frame by frame, and you'll see what I mean.

          What race is it? Why does the GSXR at the end have a front light?
          If life is a journey to death, then i want to just barely make it... skidding in sideways out of gas with smoke rolling from the motor on two bald tires, still drunk from last night and still owing everyone money!!!

              Sadly, I have no video as the race has 21 hours to go. But this will definitely be on the Internet soon.
              Frenchman David Morillon was battling David Checa on the opening lap. The swapped positions a couple of times and Morillon's ZX-10R came out of the last chicane (Magny-Cours racetrack, btw) in the lead. That's a 2nd-gear (at most) corner. And, it got amazing.

              Morillon, obviously overjoyed, stands up on the pegs and bends over to look back at Checa........... between his legs! While looking back, he rolls on the throttle and by the time he looks up, the Kawi has gone vertical. Unfortunately (for him, because it looked awesome to me), there was no Biaggi-like ending (Brno, 1998). Yes, he looped his bike while crossing the finish line on the first lap of the Bol d'Or, with 23 hours and 58 minutes left to race! A couple dozen bikes had to make interesting avoidance maneuvers and the safety car came out.

              Of course, they stuffed a microphone in his face as he was removing his helmet. the guy was obviously beyond embarrassed and tried to say he wasn't particularly trying to wheelie, doesn't know what happened, and was surprised by what the motorcycle did.

              I imagine his three teammates and the mechanics are very happy with him right now.
