Who were these guys, and how bad did they come out? Terrible crash, hope the best for both of them.

Edit: Googled and found it. I didn’t see much from Aus-X besides the Ronnie/Ricky stuff, sorry I’m late. Riders are Mitchell Evans and Aaron Tanti, both guys were pretty badly injured (back, pelvis, and scaphoid injuries) but will be alright.

What happens when you cross jump, I feel sorry for the guy that landed on him.

That would have been pretty close even without him moving over. Hopefully both make a complete recovery, that was gnarly.

Was a scary crash to see! Tanti cased the jump before causing him to cross jump

Glad he landed on those tough blocks, that's hard to watch

Yeah was not an intentional cross jump, looked like Tanti missed the first triple as his bike launched sideways.

To my surprise the week after at the next round of the series I was at the gate early in the day getting my pass when Evans, the rider that landed on Tanti hobled through the gate on crutches. Spoke to him for a bit, he was sore but said it hurt more to lay down and do nothing so came out to watch the racing.

Even more crazy was to then see Tanti later in the day walking around in the pits. He was clearly in a bit of pain, but said the same, it was worse sitting doing nothing so came out for a look.
