2013 MotoGP Crash Report

2013 MotoGP Crash Report 1 photo
With 863 crashes this season across all three classes, 2013 recorded 42 less incidents than the previous year. However, the premiere class saw 19 more crashes, to the 205 mark.
The Moto2 is the class where the most falls are recorded, for the 4th year in a row dominating this ranking. Moto3 comes next, with MotoGP being the "safest" of the three, most likely because of the riders' experience and the 1-race shorter calendar for the feeder classes.

Counting out the races themselves, Free Practice 2 is the worst part of a MotoGP racing weekend. Even Jorge Lorenzo, who only came off his bike three times during the season, suffered a collarbone fracture at Assen, in FP2, too.

For Moto3, the FP3 was the ill-fated stage, whereas the most Moto2 crashes occurred during Qualifying. The most evil circuits have been the rainy Le Mans, who took riders down no less than 68 times, while Misano saw 66 and Sachsenring 61.

Marc Marquez recorded 15 fall through the season, though none resulted in broken bones. Moto2 champion Pol Espargaro went down 8 times, and the Moto3 champion maverick Vinales5 times. Lorenzo and Pedrosa both managed to break bones, and crashed 3 and 6 times, respectively.

The worst turn remains La Caixa at Barcelona, followed by Musee at Le Mans, and Sachsenring's turn 1 and 3.
