The Moto3 Catalan GP was full of action as just 17 of 31 riders finished the race on Sunday. The final lap was by far the most chaotic of the race as three riders were sent tumbling off their bikes in dramatic fashion.

Albert Arenas, a 21-year-old, Spaniard appeared to take out both Nicolo Bulega and Aron Canet as they came out a corner at the start of the last lap.

As the footage further down the page shows, the three riders came off their bikes simultaneously, with two thrown rolling into the gravel at a terrifying speed.

Whilst Arenas and Bulega somehow managed to come out of the incident apparently unscathed, 18-year-old Canet was taken to the medical centre for treatment. The exact nature of his injuries remains unknown at the moment.

Not long after the crash, the race was won by Italian rider, Enea Bastianini. The 20-year-old had led the race from pole position but fell back into the chasing pack as Spaniard, Jorge Martin, and Japanese rider, Tatsuki Suzuki pulled out in front.

After Martin hit the gravel late on in the race, the pack caught up with Suzuki and it was Bastianini who eventually managed to take advantage as he claimed victory by just 0.167 seconds.

The race for the Moto3 world title is currently led by Marco Bezzecchi of Italy on 103 points.

The injured Canet sits in 5th just behind Catalan GP victor Bastianini, and comfortably ahead of the two other riders involved in the monster crash. But with the season only 7 of 19 races old, all is still up for grabs.

The next race of the season takes place at the TT Circuit in Assen, Netherlands, and all will be hoping that there is no repeat of the crash at the Catalan GP.
