Fatal Motorcycle accident

It is a sad Sunday for the FIM Superbike World Championship. The  Russian round at “Moscow Raceway” is overshadowed by a fatal accident in the World Supersport race.

The whole BMW Motorrad GoldBet SBK Team   sends its sincere condolences to the family and the team of Italian rider Andrea Antonelli, who died this afternoon in a tragic crash. Our   thoughts and prayers are with them in these difficult times.

This devastating news has made the sporting aspects secondary. After   the incident, it was decided to cancel the activities scheduled for   the rest of the day. In the first scheduled race of the Superbike   class, which was held before, BMW factory riders Marco Melandri (ITA)   and Chaz Davies (GBR) had finished first and second.
