Racer Riccardo Russo forgets final lap

Motorcycle racer Riccardo Russo held a three-bike lead over his nearest racer at the CIV motorcycle racing championship, but when he started the final lap, he thought he had already crossed the finish line and won.

Unfortunately for him, he was wrong. Russo began celebrating his victory by raising his body off the bike and pumping his arms in the air clearly happy and relieved. While his competitors simply zoom passed him the top of the screen visibly reads ‘Final Lap’.

It’s a little painful to watch but worth it for the tight fight to the finish among the other racers.

The moment was caught on camera and uploaded onto YouTube by MotorsTelevision.
