The video below shows Genki Hagata taking part in a motorcycle race. After watching it, you'll agree with us that it's amazing we didn't just refer to him as 'The Man Formerly Known As Genki Hagata'. What you're about to witness is close to miraculous.

The video was shot during qualifying for the AMA Pro Supersport series, at Sears Point. Genki was on his final lap when he lost control of the back of the bike.
