Danilo Petrucci crashed after the finish line at the Virginia International Raceway
Petrucci had crossed the finish line to bag a spot on the podium, but was forced to try and avoid a rider in front.
That saw him crash off at the first turn at the Virginia International Raceway event in the US.
Incredibly, the speedster managed to pick himself up from the tarmac unassisted.
But he was left with some nasty reminders from the accident.

Alongside the photo of his injuries, Petrucci wrote: “Just to inform you, I crashed at 280 km/h under the finish line that’s on a sixth gear corner for avoid touching another rider.
“I hit three sponsors signs with my body, multiple burns, multiple hematomas and a deep cut on the ankle with five stitches.
“I rolled for over 100 meters, maybe one of the worst crash of my entire career.
“And l was lying down for over two minutes with no assistance, hearing the bikes passes next to me, until I stood up by myself and went alone to the medical centre.”
