World Superbike racer Niccolo Canepa was at a track day at Mugello back in 2013 when something strange happened. A fellow rider inexplicably crashed while alongside the former EBR and current Ducati racer. Now there’s video, and you’d have to be blind not to see what went down.
Italian motorcycle racer Andrea Antonelli died in a crash today at the World Supersport round in Moscow under a torrential downpour. He was 25.
