This Jamaican Rider's Moto-GP Style Save Is Worth An Applause
Jamaican rider Kyle 'Irie Racing' Reynolds might be on an old ZX-6R racing around a dilapidated track, but that didn't stop him pulling out the MotoGP moves with this incredible save.
Reynolds was racing in the Jamaican Race Drivers’ Club Carnival of Speed at Dover Raceway on Monday when a highside on turn 13 chucked him upwards and off his bike.
Reynolds refused to be thrown all the way off though and clung to the bars, before channelling a bit of Randy Mamola/Niklas Ajo, skidding on his feet alongside the bike for several hundred metres.
Once he slows down enough, he's happy to jump back on and continue the race.
Reynolds, who runs Irie Moto Tours on the island, commented: "I tried to take a wider entry into the uphill off-camber left turn so I could end up on the inside of the rider in front to set up the pass, but I got too greedy getting on the gas and spun the rear...
"It was a silly mistake but luckily I was able to save it. That part of the track has no run off as you are in between two wall and the bike would have been badly damaged if it had ran into the wall."
