VIDEO: Fabrizio wipes out Spies

See Ducati hopeful take down Championship favourite in high-speed lunge at Brno

THIS IS THE moment Xerox Ducati rider Michel Fabrizio wiped out race leader Ben Spies during Sunday's first race at Brno World Superbikes.

After the race Fabrizio was quick to accept full responsibility for the crash, claiming he 'needed to stay calmer'.

Spies dusted himself off after the high-speed crash and, like a true champion, went out and won race two.
