It would probably be even cooler if we could actually see a picture :D. All I get is the little red X.

Yes, he survived. And ended up restarting the race on a backup bike from the back. He ended up finishing seventh I believe. :cool:

Well, let's fully put this in perspective. Not only did he get back up, jog back to the pits for his backup bike, but he restarted the race at the back of the 30-odd bike field then he made his way through the pack to 6th place, only to go into a corner too hot, overrun it, lose a handful of positions, then work back up to a 7th place finish. Pretty awesome!

That was the most horrific crash I ever saw. Gives new meaning to the word "endo" or "stoppie". I only saw a brief clip form Motoworld. What really happened? Made my girlfriend wince about me racing.

You can read more about this in the News forum and in the "Race Chat" forum.

Basically, Kocinski was in front of Rapp and hit the brakes sooner than Rapp expected. Rapp consequently hit the back of Kocinski. Contact came in the form of Rapp's front brake lever hitting the tail section of Kocinski resulting in a front wheel lock (you'll notice in the video the long skid mark left). After this, general rules of physics took over - Rapp was tossed and the bike tumbled and disintegrated.
