Arai GP5 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Aussie MotoX gun Jono Porter critically injured

Sad news, but I feel we should give our support.

One of Australia's finest Motocross and Supercross riders, 23 year old Jono Porter, was critically injured over the weekend racing in the Maxxis Mr Motocross Series, in Coolum, Qld.

As of late Tuesday night, his condition remains critical, and he is relying on a respirator to breathe, with extensive brain trauma.

I extend my best wishes to his family, friends and many fans, and hope that better news is not far away.

Very sorry to say he passed away today.Too much damage to head chest and spine apparently.Very sad
When i first heard the headlines i thought it was from the stunt/x games stuff he does but from what i read he just crashed in the (start?)pack in the national motocross round

saw him race the 125cc super x masters at rod laver arena on the factory suzuki - he used to get some mad air time..... jono won the brisbane round in 2002 and came 5th in the series..... his main speciality was the xtreme jumping etc
