WATCH: Incredible moment sees Moto3 racer 'jump' over crashed bike

accreditation

Czech Republic rider Jakub Kornfeil is arguably one of the most 'googled' names this morning.

Why? A video clip of Kornfeil 'jumping' over a fellow rider who had crashed during the French GP Moto3 race at Le Mans is proving popular on MotoGP's social media platforms. 

In fact its been billed as the greatest save in Moto3 history. And it's not hard to see why.

Kornfeil launches his bike into the air, escaping the flailing bike of Enea Bastianini and still managing to stay upright on his bike despite landing on the gravel. 

It looks like a Hollywood stunt, and from every angle it looks incredible. The Czech rider eventually finished 6th overall. 

Watch the clip below:
