Video: Vialle down hard in ugly crash at Daytona
Tom Vialle was in great position to contend for a podium after leading the opening lap at Daytona before Hunter Lawrence got around dropping him to second. But the Frenchman was looking ready to fight for his first podium in supercross until an ugly crash took him out of the race early.

Thankfully, Tom was unhurt but his big was destroyed in what Vialle amazingly described as, “a tip over” in his post race comments: “First time for me in Daytona was pretty good, I felt great in the practice and qualified sixth. I had a great start, I was first in the Heat on the start and I finished second, felt good. I had another great start in the Main Event and when Hunter Lawrence passed me, I was sitting well in second position, but on lap three I tipped over on a triple – I landed a little bit short and just tipped over. For sure, that was frustrating because I feel like we could have delivered a strong result, but that is how it is and we are going to do a great week with training and be ready for next weekend.”
