  1. Always sad to hear RIP #Mexicano39

    Following an incident during today’s Moto2™ Free Practice 2 at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, it is with great sadness that we have to report the passing of Luis Salom (SAG Team).

    The session was red flagged with just under 25 minutes remaining after the Spanish rider fell at Turn 12.

    Two medical cars and then two ambulances were immediately on scene to treat the 24-year-old and the medical helicopter was also deployed to assist in his treatment.

    Due the severity of his condition, the decision was taken to transfer Salom by road to the nearby Hospital General de Catalunya. On arrival, he underwent surgery, but despite the best efforts of the trauma team, he passed away at 16:55pm local time.

    Very sad news, a tragic circumstance where the bike bounced back on top of him from the air fence. Thanks for the races Luis. I will prefer to remember you as a guy with a perpetual smile and a love of racing. RIP.
