Supersonic Racing Ducati


Believe it or not, but Maxime Berger is thanking his lucky stars that his OZ wheel failed when it did, as the French rider could easily have been at a faster turn at Donington Park, or worse, barreling down the straightaway at maximum speed during. It’s rare that you see a roadracing wheel brake away from its hub, especially since these parts are cast/forged as a single unit. It’s even rarer that we catch that moment occurring in a photograph as spectacular as this. It was a tough break (pun intended) for this World Superbike rider, but kudos to the photographer.
