It just goes to show that no matter how good a rider you are, riding on public roads can make even the best riders in the world, make mistakes like us mortals. Those who follow the MotoGP and Moto2 will know of Ratthaprak Wilairot. He recently returned to Thailand due to family reasons. Last Monday at 3 am he was riding a bike in Bangkok and had an accident which left him unconscious with severe bruising to his hands and his head. He was placed in Intensive care and as of yesterday his condition was described as encouraging by the Bumrungrad hospital spokesperson. He is on a ventilator and is expected to recover. There are no details on the accident. But I wonder about an accident at 3 am and also wonder what he was wearing. My guess is nothing for protection for his body and maybe no helmet. Probably never know unless it is revealed by the European MotoGP media He is a brilliant rider and hopefully he may learn that what you wear on the track works on the road.
