Motorcyclist - - Framed - PHO­TOG­RA­PHY BY JAIME OLIVARES

Jakub Korn­feil was chasing the lead­ers dur­ing the Moto3 race at Le Mans in May when Enea Bas­tian­ini went down in front of him. Korn­feil used his ex­pe­ri­ence rac­ing mo­tocross, grabbed a hand­ful of throt­tle, and launched his KTM over the downed Honda in a spec­tac­u­lar save. Re-en­try de­ployed his air bag and shat­tered his car­bon-fiber, but he stayed up­right and rode to a sixth-place fin­ish.
