MotoGP star Marc Marquez had luck on his side after suffering one of the 'biggest ever" crashes in the race's history.
The professional motorcycle racer, 29, was reportedly thrown off of his bike — for the second time in a week — and was dramatically sent flying 15 feet in the air during a warm up session for the Indonesian GP.
According to the Daily Star, Marquez got up and walked away from the crash relatively unharmed after being tossed from the heavy piece of machinery.
"That's a shocking crash for Marc Marquez. That's one of the biggest high-sides I've seen in 25 years covering this sport. He must have been 12 to 15 feet in the air the Repsol Honda man," BT Sport commentator Gavin Emmett stated of the accident.
The racer was then picked up by race hands and transported directly to the hospital to be evaluated for any injuries.
"Marc is fine. He had a high energy crash in the warm up, which resulted in a head injury. Initially, we examined him here and then referred him to the hospital in Lombok," Doctor Angel Charte said of Marquez's current state. "He underwent several radiological tests, which were negative."
However, due to doctors having to keep an eye on him to ensure a speedy recovery, Marquez will be out of the competition.
"In agreement with the rider and the team, and due to the fact that this type of pathology requires a period of observation between 12 and 24 hours, the rider, the team and the MotoGP medical staff have decided to declare him as unfit," the medical expert noted.
The experienced motorcycle racer and native of Spain has won the senior MotoGP world championship on six occasions and missed the majority of the 2020 season after breaking the humerus in his right arm after a harsh fall.
