Scare in Moto2: Syahrin crashes into Bastianini's bike, but he's conscious

UPDATE - Lap 4, red flag at the Red Bull Ring. Borsoi: "He seems to be fine, he responds to the doctors' questions." The CT scan showed no fractures.


During the fourth lap of the Moto2 race in Austria at the Red Bull Ring, a very serious accident occurred with Enea Bastianini, who fell and lost control of his Kalex out of Turn 1. The Italtrans team's bike remained in the middle of the track, as did the Italian rider, who was fortunately "dodged" by everyone.

The worst impact, however, was that of Syahrin, a former MotoGP rider, who, coming out of Dixon's wake, could not see Bastianini's bike, crashing into it and destroying it. Edgar Pons also ended up falling, since he hit the tire of Bastianini's bike. All riders involved in the accident are conscious.

"Fortunately, I'm fine. Everyone's adrenaline was high at that moment. As soon as I crashed, I tried to run from the track. I'm also happy for Syahrin," Bastianini told Sky. "It's a shame because the bike wasn't working. I opened just a hair before, to stay attached to the leaders."  

Syahrin was immediately taken to the Medical Center by ambulance.

"I just talked to the doctors, and it seems like the rider is fine," Gino Borsoi said. "He probably got hit hard all over his body, but he's conscious and responds to the doctors' questions."  

The red flag was immediately raised, and the race will resume as soon as the track is cleared. The race will start again with 13 laps and a line-up based on the positions of the third lap.

UPDATE - The CT scan showed no fractures, Syahrin was however transferred to the Spielberg hospital for adidtional tests.
