Crashed off the side of the infamous Tail of the Dragon with no reception, Kevin Diepenbrock thought he was going to die. In the 30 hours before his miraculous rescue, he recorded what he thought were to be his last words to his family.
Defeat hurts, but this looks pretty bad too: while celebrating a win in an FIM Motocross of Nations race on Sunday, the bike of a lapped rider came flying toward Jason Anderson and smacked him in the head. Video of the incident looks brutal, but Anderson’s race team later reported that he is OK.
Oh, moms. They’re always there for us, worrying about our diets, speculating on our lack of sleep, and, of course, smacking our motorcyles out from our crotches with the front of their Hyundais. Like this mom did to her son a few days ago in Washington state.
Moto3 rider John McPhee got his first grand prix victory at last week’s Czech GP on a rain-soaked Brno Circuit. But he very nearly didn’t. You’ll see what I mean.
How the hell does one motorcyclist directly rear-end another motorcyclist at high speed in this situation? What is even happening?
Preliminary data from state highway safety offices around America shows annual traffic fatalities for motorcyclists going up an estimated 10 percent in 2015. That meant about 450 more bikers killed on the road last year than the year before for an expected total of just over 5,000. Here’s what we know.
Australian motorcycle drag racer Brett Ghedina found himself rolling down the drag strip after his motorcycle rocketed from beneath him. The footage is startling, but somehow, the rider shakes it off like a boss.
Checkers or wreckers—that’s usually how it goes in racing. But sometimes you get both, like NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer did on Saturday night. While riding a Supercross bike.
There’s a common phrase in the bike world: “It isn’t that you haven’t crashed, it’s that you haven’t crashed yet.” The idea that all motorcyclists are likely to crash is a smart one that will likely help keep riders safe, but reminding each other of it all the time is rude, annoying, and drives us apart. Let’s break…
I came to in the infield, lying on sharp, baseball-sized rocks and gasping for air like a beached fish––all the ribs on my right side were broken and poking my insides as if I’d swallowed a Swiss army knife. I also had a dislocated shoulder, a torn rotator cuff, a broken collarbone, a fractured vertebra, and torn…
You ever have a motorcycle come up crazy fast behind your car, and then you watch in your mirror and pray to the speed gods that he slows down? This is one of those times where the rider doesn't. And it's bad.
I can't decide what's crazier in this video: the nine or 10 bikes that go down at the start of this race, or the announcer's incredulous reactions to it, which include "CARNAGE!" and "a bowling alley with bikes everywhere!"
It is important to note this: Florida State tight end Nick O'Leary not only survived this horrific motorcycle crash this May, he walked away from it.
