Josh Brooks Drops the Bike as He Does the Victory Burnout

Milwaukee Yamaha's Josh Brookes is the leader of the British Superbike series, and he won both races last weekend at Thruxton, in the UK.

Even more than leading the current standings, Brookes has also won both races in the penultimate round, at Brands Hatch, so we might say he is the man of the moment in the BSB championship. After the second Thruxton race, Josh Brookes coined this "man of the moment" tag, as a short video of his actions went viral on the internet.

A big burnout is a great way to celebrate a second successful race for the weekend, especially as the rear tire is going to be binned anyway, so there's no harm done. Doing a burnout in front of the grandstands is even more entertaining for the audience at the circuit, and an extra display of riding skills.

Winning a race is different from doing a rolling burnout...

... but you already knew that. However, it looks like even winning four races in a row is easier than doing a rolling burnout. Brookes can be see revving his Yamaha R1 really high and surrounding himself in smoke, only to flip to the ground seconds later.

The bike goes down with him, obviously, and as he picks it up we can see the left clip-on broken, dangling like an inert limb. We're positive Milwaukee Yamaha will forgive him for this silly and funny mistake.

After all, replacing a cracked fairing and a clip-on is a more than fair price for four consecutive victories, isn't it? We are still six rounds and 12 races until the end of the BSB season. Wonder what trick will Josh Brookes perform (or fail) if maintains his pace and wins his first title...

PS: We were kidding at the end.
