Unhappy RIP Luis Salom

It's an extreme sad day. We lost another great rider. RIP Luis Salom....

http://www.motogp.com/en/news/2016/0...s-salom/202682

"Luis Salom was involved in a crash at Turn 12 in Barcelona during Moto2™ Free Practice 2.
Tags Moto2, 2016, GRAN PREMI MONSTER ENERGY DE CATALUNYA, Luis Salom, SAG Team, #CatalanGP
Following an incident during today’s Moto2™ Free Practice 2 at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, it is with great sadness that we have to report the passing of Luis Salom (SAG Team).

The session was red flagged with just under 25 minutes remaining after the Spanish rider fell at Turn 12.

Two medical cars and then two ambulances were immediately on scene to treat the 24-year-old and the medical helicopter was also deployed to assist in his treatment.

Due the severity of his condition, the decision was taken to transfer Salom by road to the nearby Hospital General de Catalunya. On arrival, he underwent surgery, but despite the best efforts of the trauma team, he passed away at 16:55pm local time.

Salom made his World Championship debut at Jerez in 2009 in the 125cc category. He finished on the podium in 25 races, including nine victories in the Moto3™ World Championship. He finished the 2012 Moto3™ World Championship in second position in the standings and a year later was third overall after battling with Maverick Viñales and Alex Rins down to the final round in Valencia.

He also finished on the podium three times in 41 appearances in the Moto2™ World Championship, including a second place pace in the opening round of 2016 at the Losail International Circuit in Qatar.

The FIM, Dorna, IRTA, RFME and the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya wishes to pass on its condolences to the family, friends and team of Salom.

Remember and pay tribute to Luis Salom with the hashtag #Mexicano"

Looks like he slid under the barricade and/or hit his bike.


RIP

Yea, such a tragedy. MGP hasn't experienced a single-bike fatality since Kato (2003), which was 13 years ago...

Sadly, this is not accurate. Peter Lenz died in Indianapolis in 2010 at the USGP

Man, that's such a sad story...only 13 years old

To clarify, what I meant was that Kato was the last fatality for a single-bike or self contained incident. Based on the ESPN article Peter Lenz was struck by another rider.

Much like Sic in 2011 and Tomizawa in 2010 was struck by another rider.

RIP
Apparently his bike crashed into the air fence first and then he crashed into his bike. Freak accident. Most are speculating a mechanical failure caused the crash. Also, it's all asphalt to the fence.
