On a cold but sunny weekend in China, the annual 3 Hour Superbike Endurance took place at the Zhuhai International Circuit.

Temperatures dipped down to seven degrees Celsius, keeping the track slippery, but with the sun shining, the event was a success.

Special feature blog: Dan Kruger recounts "most unbelievable week of my career" after winning Pan-Delta final this past weekend
Last week we reported that Canadian Dan Kruger had a vicious highside during practice for the final round of the Pan Delta Championship series in Zhuhai, China that landed him in a Hong Kong hospital with severe injuries and internal bleeding. He then sent Inside Motorcycles this exclusive recap of what he called "the most unbeleivable weekend of my career."
1. Hospital in China for initial diagnosis - pain meds, catheter inserted, X-rays, etc.
2. transported to Hong Kong hospital for further tests. Internal bleeding is the problem, with a fractured pelvis and a ruptured urethra.
3. Bleeding gets worse internally so they put me into surgery right away; two and half hours later, I wake up and things are much improved. They put some plastic parts inside me to reconstruct the damage.

I finally did it! I completed a two-day test at the world famous Suzuka Circuit. This was a long time coming with tons of planning; nothing is ever spontaneous with the Japanese. That is not a bad thing - in fact, when dealing with motorbikes and foreign countries, having a detailed plan is the right way to go.

I will never forget the first time I crashed while testing alone on the Zhuhai circuit in China. It had rained earlier in the day, but there was a dry line. I was on a fast lap but ran out onto the rumble strip coming out of a corner, and immediately high-sided (so much for traction control!!!). I wasn’t going fast, but I went straight up in the air and came straight back down.
