Just about anyone who has thrown a leg over a race bike has most probably also experienced a crash or two. Crashing sucks! It is expensive, dangerous, and sometimes even embarrassing. Nobody that I know enjoys crashing… period!
Unfortunately, crashing is a reality in Superbike racing. It is a highly competitive sport and races are run in pretty much all weather conditions (well, not snow!). There are also mechanical failures, tire failures and sometimes, it happens in that split second when you lose your focus. That’s all it takes to find yourself sliding down the track.

Less than a week after Brett McCormick's serious accident while racing in Europe, fellow Canadian Superbike racer Dan Kruger was injured in a crash during a private test session at Zhuhai International Circuit in China on Wednesday. While his injuries were not life threatening, Kruger was rushed to a local hospital where he was diagnosed with two broken ribs, a badly bruised lung, a broken bone in his wrist and multiple bruises. Original concerns of a broken sternum and more serious lung damage have been ruled out for the time being, although Kruger is en route to Shanghai to get a second opinion due to continued severe chest pain and to have his wrist set.
