Two Costa Rican motorcyclists have been handed two-year bans, after they started a fight midway through a national championship race last month.
The fight took place at Costa Rica’s national motorbike championship in February, but the bans have only taken place this week.
Jorge Martinez and Marion Calvo were battling for position when their bikes became tangled, as Martinez’s bike disappeared off towards the wall, he bizarrely ended up hanging onto the back of Calvo’s bike, Nine News reported.
When Calvo came to a stop he turned to discover Martinez on the back of his bike and pushed his opponent away.
Martinez then delivered a right hook and sent Calvo crashing to the ground.
Calvo continued the fight and chased after Martinez to push him in the in the back. Commonsense eventually prevailed and approaching bikes separated the pair.
The race was then red-flagged and the two scrapping riders were thrown out.
The Latin American Motorcycle Association has now suspended both riders for two years.
