Former World Superbike Champion Troy Bayliss suffered a serious crash during a semi-final race for the Sacramento Mile. Bayliss was competing in his second AMA Flat Track race on a Lloyd Brothers Ducati racebike when he crashed into the air fence on Turn 3, suffering a fractured fibula.

Though no doubt disappointed, Bayliss seemed to be in positive spirit, tweeting updates even from the ambulance:

Bayliss later posted his x-ray on Facebook, revealing his injuries:

Not so bad , leave for home today and get her welded up soon as I land , TB 21
