Video: Niklas Ajo's Assen Save

Moto3 rider almost highsides on last lap, takes checkered flag off the side of his bike

On the final lap of the Dutch TT at Assen earlier this year, Finn Moto3 rider Niklas Ajo highsided in the final corner on the last lap. Well, almost...

Somehow, Ajo managed to not crash his KTM, although he was thrown off the side of the bike and rode off into the grass, dangerously close to the guardrail. Then, Ajo managed to steer back on to the track and take the checkered flag, still off the side of his bike and sliding on his knees. Watch the video above to see Ajo's spectacular save.
