Crutchlow Crashes at Sachsenring
Turn 11 strikes again at Sachsenring, and again it's one of the Yamahas down, but this time it's Cal Crutchlow.
Cal lost the front almost halfway into the turn and lowsided at 200 km/h (124 mph), sliding alongside the bike on the tarmac. However, things changed as both hit the gravel patch: the bike started tumbling and took a pretty bad beating, while the Englishman bounced as well for several meters.

It's his second crash this weekend, bu luckily he sustained no fractures and no major injuries. This time tough, several pieces of gravel got trapped inside his left glove and had to be removed by the medical staff at the Clinica Mobile, who also cleaned and dressed his wounds. The Brit also suffered some friction burns but he will be just alright for the Sunday race.
