Moto2 Rider Tetsuta Nagashima Transforms Into A Surfer After A Crash

MotoGP racing has always been known for forcing riders to scrape their knees along hot tracks at 75 mph, but Japanese racer Tetsuta Nagashima has a new trick up his sleeve.

The Moto2 competitor was racing in the Red Bull Ring during Austria's Motorcycle Grand Prix on Friday when his bike slid out from under him.

Most riders might ditch their bike to avoid an injury, but not Nagashima, who converted his bike into a surfboard.

Nagashima was rounding turn 9 on the Red Bull Ring before the crash, but heavy rain had made the track slick, forcing Nagashima into a tumble. Nagashima's bike flipped over on its left side, but rather than fall away from the bike, Nagashima pinned his feet against the flat of the bike's side and rode it a fair distance off the track and into the grass before coming to a halt against the track's rumble strips.

Nagashima, 26 years old, managed to escape unharmed.
