RIP Andrea.
Poor bloke never stood a chance as he came off mid pack in the middle of the track, hidden by the spray.

There is you tube floating around of it.

Poor guy got nailed, and I doubt the rider that hit him even knew there was a bike down.

You are right, one of the other riders tried to signal but that spray hid everything.

Very tragic incident. Poor race conditions unfortunately were a big contributor. We also lost a CCS club racer this weekend at NJMP (Cesar Chacon). RIP.

Yeah too much spray to see a thing. Later in the race would have been a non issue but with all those bikes there packed up he had no chance. This may change things over at WSBK.

They have been notorious over the last few years for not calling off or stopping races in bad conditions. I remember Laverty going past the finish line multiple times racing his hands begging them to stop a race on Germany in horrible rain where half the field had crashed out already.
