Watch this Moto GP rider surf on his bike after a crash in the rain
Both rider and camera operator showed off their skills.
Motorbike racing produces its fair share of spectacular falls, but rarely does it produce a save as magnificent as this multi-sport effort from Tetsuta Nagashima.
The Japanese rider was putting in some laps ahead of a Moto2 race in Austria, when his bike got away from him in the wet conditions.
But with so much water around, it did at least give the 26-year-old Honda rider a chance to practise his surfing technique.
Nagashima expertly rode his bike for some time before tumbling onto the grass, a far more forgiving surface than the hard track.
Can someone add Beach Boys music to this clip? Please...— Stephan (team 🇳🇱🇪🇺🌍♇) (@stephan_nl_) August 11, 2018
To complete the scene, perhaps try watching the incident with this music played over the top.
Ah, much better.
