Craig Jones Dies After Brands Crash

Motorcycle racing is in shock after the death of hugely popular English World Supersport racer Craig Jones.

Jonesy suffered serious head injuries when he fell from his Honda, and tragically passed away during the night aged just 23. He was running 2nd in the World Supersport championship race at Brands Hatch, challenging for the lead when he crashed. He will always be remembered for the way he entertained the crowds with his outrageous sideways riding style, backing the bike in to every corner as he battled at the front of the pack.

I can only offer my deepest sympathy to Jonesy's family and friends. He will never be forgotten.
