Pol Espargaro Unhurt, Bike Not so Lucky After Huge Crash at Italian MotoGP

Mark Patterson@@MarkPattersonBRUK Staff WriterMay 30, 2014

MotoGP rider Pol Espargaro was tuning up for the Italian MotoGP race at Mugello when he had a spectacular crash in practice.

Espargaro looked untroubled down the straight. However, he suddenly lost the back wheel as he began to turn into a corner, and he was unseated.

The Spaniard rolled to safety and was unhurt. In fact, showing the fearless spirit of a racer, he was back out practicing later in the day.

The same could not be said for his bike, which flipped and lost several pieces.
