Jeremy van Horebeek goes down and gets tangled in Tim Gajser’s back wheel at the start of the second race at the MXGP of Pietramurata in Italy.
The newly-crowned world champion looked distressed as he waited for the 30-year-old Belgian to be freed from his works CRF450R.
The moto was red-flagged and Gajser was able to line up at the gate for the restart while Van Horebeek was taken to the medic station.
Van Horebeek, who was racing his last GP of the season with his partner expecting twin boys to arrive soon, was able to walk back to his trailer under his own steam.
The rider currently has no deal signed for 2021.
