[Huiyoh] How A 290 KM/H Bike Crash Looks Like, Caused By A Blown Tyre

So, this particular crash actually happened in our very own Sepang Circuit few days ago which involved Loris Baz of Avintia Racing during MotoGP testing session.

As horrific as these pictures and video looked like, Loris actually walked away with just a bruised elbow and sore muscles. Hence, not surprising that the first thing he thanked at after the crash was his Alpinestars race suit:
