The (Flying) Scotsman was exiting the final wooded section of the track when he came a cropper on a gap jump, the take-off of which had softened considerably between practice day and race day.

Reece was bucked, still clipped-in to his bike, hit the deck hard and careered off through the tape into a couple of bewildered spectators, none of whom were injured.

Needless to say it features some incredible riding.
