Tom Vialle Had One of the Gnarliest Crashes You’ll See at the MXGP of Lombardia

After a runner-up finish in the first MX2 moto at the MXGP of Lombardia in Italy on Sunday, Red Bull KTM’s Tom Vialle had one of the scariest crashes I’ve seen in some time.

Somehow, Vialle was okay and even managed to finish the race in 21st.

“A strange weekend. It started well with P2 on Saturday so I had a good place in the gate,” he said. “The first moto was OK. 2nd again was good but I wasn’t that happy with my riding. We changed the bike a bit for the second moto and I felt better. I was leading but the jump take-off had been watered and it was still early in the race. It was a huge crash! I was very lucky. I’m thankful for that. We have Argentina next and a bit of time now to train and to continue to improve.”

Motocross racers are just built different, man!
