    We all love a spectacular crash captured on film...when it all ends well.

    My mate decided to have a snooze on T13 (? Last Left) of Portimao. Parked the bike off to the side but decided the tarmac was a nice warm place to lay down.

    Turn 13 is a slow one at least. One of those tricky corners as the drop in speed makes balance tricky whilst you are waiting for the bike to turn and the moment to get back on the power.

    He face planted on the brakes. Knocked out cold.

    Notice the other bike - he fluffed the corner and my mate was chasing him round.

    Yes its his zx10. And TC doesn't matter...this was on corner entry...he snatched the brakes whilst on for a 1:55ish due to low sun.

    We think the sun just hit the kerb perfectly and blinded both the guy in front and him.

    Guy in front stood it up and ran off track. My mate thinks he squeezed the brake a tiny bit and tucked the front.
