I can't remember anything of the sort. Closest is Gardner crashing in the wet, remounting (fnarr) and working his way to 5th or something before crashing again and busting his leg

I Ride: BMW, Honda, and another Honda
Miguel Duhamel at the Daytona 200 was the first thing that popped into my head, but I can't remember if he won, and I doubt this is what your mum is speaking about. Perhaps it was one of the lower cubic centimeter classes where it happened, and we just don't remember. Best o' luck.

Several riders were penalised for this but Ducati went unpunished despite Bayliss crashing twice and still finishing in fifth place. In Supersport it was a great race between the two Belgarda Yamahas of Whitham and Paulo Casoli (remember him?). Stair rods towards the end of the race caused Whitham to crash out but it was red flagged and taken back a lap when he was leading so he won. If I remember rightly, having won the first race, Colin crashed on the warm up lap of race 2 which Bayliss won.

Will try a JK special and google later but didn't Bayliss also do this on the 250cc Suzuki in a we PI debut?

For some reason I seem to recall a crash in the wet, pickup the bike and still 5th.

May have the wrong rider but am sure it was PI



Will start googling

I remember PI footage of his stricken gixxer spinning around in the middle of the circuit.

Yes, 1st race of 92, After the first accident he ripped off the broken wind screen
and rode the rest of the race (until 2nd off) in the rain with out it. Pretty gutsy ride.

That is the one .......... must have been WSBK as he was racing Suziest hat year in Oz, so may have had a WSBK wildcard which then led to the 250cc

Am definitely thinking WSBK now and google has helped as I recall him finishing 5th which he did in both legs of WSBK, and 6th on the 250

My favourite looking NSR500, too. With the meshed vents in the fairing nose. Mean looking bugger

I remember Chris Walker doing it in WSBK in Assen but that can't have been more than a dozen years ago, he's a sidecar driver now is Chris.
