1. Jason O’Halloran Gets Loose At Thruxton


It’s one thing to slide a road racing motorcycle to show off for the fans, but it’s another thing entirely to do it on the final lap while leading a race, with four other guys hot on your heels. But that’s exactly what Jason O’Halloran did during the British Superstock 1000 race at Thruxton last year. Riding an underpowered Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade against a field of BMW S1000RRs and Kawasaki ZX-10Rs, O’Halloran destroyed his tires to stay with the pack. Once he found himself in the lead with two laps to go, he knew he had to get on the gas early and often to have any chance at staying in front. The entire race is a good one, but to see why I picked this clip for the top spot, watch from the 17-minute mark. O’Halloran’s skill taming that wild Honda will leave you on the edge of your seat.
