Sad news from America last weekend as two Spanish riders have died following a crash during the MotoAmerica Superbike/Superstock 1000 race at Laguna Seca.

Bernat Martinez of Valencia and Daniel Rivas of Moana Galicia were transported to area hospitals following the opening-lap crash, but passed away as a result of their injuries. 

“I really don’t have any words to describe what we all feel,” said MotoAmerica president Wayne Rainey. “First and foremost, is the loss to the families and loved ones. Our sincere condolences go out to each and every one of them as well as the MotoAmerica family. They are in our thoughts and prayers.”

Martinez was 35 and Rivas was 27.
