How does he highside and follow it up with what seems to be a gymnastic routine with the flip he does and walk off the track as if it was on purpose? I do one frontflip and land on my back and consider myself good...

His fall wasn't as high impact as the other guy who really went up in the air. He was at least able to crawl to safety which is good.

The German really makes that video. If the guy was speaking in English it would have just sounded like a redneck babbling on about Billy-Bob trying to wear down his chicken strips.

that was insane. Hollywood couldn't script something that insane.

What was all the white stuff that flew off the bike when the two motorcycles collided? It looked weird. It doesn't feel like it's smoke.

Unfortunately my brain was replacing the german babble with said redneck billy-bob language.

The downed bike was already spewing fuel (the white stuff you saw) as it tumbled down the asphalt, then when it got hit, that finished off the gas tank. Then came the inevitable spark.

You'd see it as white because it's more than likely almost a mist at that point.

That literally was the mother of all highsides!

Super lucky they didn't get run over while laying on the track though. Props to all the other riders.

Why does water appear white when falling down a waterfall? Why do we call them 'white' water rapids? Clear liquids will appear white when they are in very turbulent and aerated conditions such as that crash.

Could have just pointed out that clouds are white even though water is clear.
