PICS: Bautista falls on slow down lap

This is the moment when 250GP title contender Alvaro Bautista lost control of his Aspar Aprilia - whilst celebrating third position on the slowdown lap after Sunday's Czech Republic Grand Prix at Brno.

“I tried to do a wheelie and instead I did a back-flip!” smiled an embarrassed Bautista.

Good ole Alvaro... I've never seen someone with an ear-to-ear grin, after trashing a mega-buck race prototype. Great to see he can laugh at himself at the post-race interview, which is a unique quality in the MotoGP paddock (take note moaner27).
