Moto2 world championship leader Alex Marquez managed to keep the bike upright after the rear wheel lost traction on the wet track. The incident occurred during a training session before the Japanese Grand Prix on the Twin Ring Motegi circuit.

At the exit from the last turn, Marquez’s motorcycle went into a skid and the rider was thrown out of the saddle. The so-called highside occurs when the traction of the rear wheel with the road surface is lost, a significant departure from the trajectory and a sharp restoration of the hook – at this very moment the pilot literally pushes forward.

Earlier, a video appeared on the Web how the driver of the Tesla Model 3 managed to avoid a collision with Nissan. Having noticed a car approaching too fast in the mirror, he knew how to literally jump away from a collision, for which, of course, one should thank the impressive dynamics of Tesla.
