A handful of question marks were raised after fans perused the results from the second MX2 moto at the opening round of the Dutch Masters, Oss, as some guys were further down the order than they typically would be. Most notably, Ben Watson did not complete a single lap. What happened? It turns out that there was a massive crash in the first turn, which claimed Watson and Tom Vialle to name a few, but luckily neither rider was injured. #919 shared the following video on social media (click the arrow on the right-hand side of the photo to view the video).

Watson confirmed that he is "all good and ready to keep working through these next few weeks" in the caption, so there is nothing to worry about. A second in the opening moto still left him seventh overall in the MX2 division.
