Video: Max Neukirchner Escapes a Nasty Highside During the Portimao Superpole Max Neukirchner Portimao WSBK 560x371

Max Neukirchner was a unlucky (or is it lucky?) man this weekend while World Superbike made a race weekend at Portimao. While racing during the Superpole event at the Portugese track, the German rider found himself and his Ten Kate Honda on the wrong end of a nasty highside. Cresting over the hill, you can see Neukirchner spin like a top, while his Honda CBR gets its rear wheel crushed. As you’ll see in the video after the jump, Neukirchner came out of the crash relatively unscathed, and was able to start Race 1 at Portimao.

    That is totally surreal with him spinning and the crest obscuring everything. Amazing that he walks away and the bike is destroyed. During the race, one of the commentators said the only thing they salvaged was the engine.
