This is what happened to Matt Moss when he was told to go for his super pole lap on his Suzuki RM-Z 450 at Round 7 of the MX Nationals at Shepparton in Australia. Just a warning before you hit play, it’s a sickening crash to watch.
No word on Matt’s injuries but everyone at DBR wishes him well and we hope he makes a full recovery.
