World Endurance racer Anthony Delhalle, one of the top riders in the series, has died as a result of a crash during practice.
Delhalle was riding at France’s Nogaro Circuit last week, practicing for the upcoming 24 Heures Motos as a member of the Suzuki Endurance Racing Team. It sounds as if the cause of the crash is a bit of a mystery; Delhalle crashed at the end of the pit straight line, the FIM write-up said.
Delhalle had won five FIM World Endurance championships with the Suzuki team since signing on in 2011. He was 35 years old, and leaves behind a wife and two children.
Canada Moto Guide offers its condolences to Delhalle’s family and friends at this time.
