Schumacher unconscious after huge highside

Former F1 champ out cold after crashing in testing for German Superbike Championship

BIKE RACING nut, the Teuton's Teuton and former seven-time F1 World Champion Michael Schumacher has had a big crash while motorcycle testing at the Cartagena circuit in Spain.

Schumacher was putting his bike through its paces as part of his preparation for the IDM German Superbike Championship, which he will be taking part in this year.

The German was riding a team Holzhauer Honda CBR1000 Fireblade when he reportedly highsided and was knocked out in the crash after banging his head during the spill.

He was rushed to a nearby hospital where he regained consciousness soon after. Schumacher complained of a painful neck and right wrist, but a scan ruled out any serious injuries.

Wait for it, if you listen really hard you can almost hear the F1 brigade piping up with their 'bikes worse than cars' mantra now...
