PICS: Praia crashes out in Australia

Miguel Praia's 2009 World Supersport season got off to an inauspicious start following a spectacular accident at Phillip Island.

The Portuguese rider had just set the fastest lap of the race when he clipped the back of Robbin Harms' Veidec Honda at the Honda Curve, sending both himself and his Parkalgar bike barrel rolling into the gravel.

“I made a good start to the race and on my second lap I posted 1min 35.4secs which was the quickest at the time, the fifth fastest of the race and two seconds faster than my lap time from last year.

“I was riding well and with confidence but with a full tank of fuel which caused some problems and on lap three I made a mistake and went into the Honda Hairpin too fast and touched with Robin Harms

Praia escaped unharmed, but the photographers were there to capture every moment of his accident.
