I saw that crash just now (recorded). Bloody awful. I really liked Craig as a rider and its a sad day indeed if its true that he passed away.

Condolences to his family and all who knew him.

Man I can't believe it.

I was watching the coverage on Eurosport when it happened.

I got the jitters when I saw him lying motionless on the ground, hoping that he would move, it was really scary seeing it.

Was hoping to read news today of him sitting up in bed saying how lucky he was, but it just wasn't meant to be.

Absolutely gutted. One of the best talents we've had in ages.

RIP Jonesy. :( :( :(

Yes your right youtube has it, probably wont be on for long though can see he gets hit in the head by the 3rd place bike at some rate of knots which sends him spinning round a few times.....

It's especially tragic for one so young.
I have (inadvertently) watched his career as a racer. He has the same name as a friend on mine from B'ham. (A professional stunt rider)
So his name would always grab my attention.
A very, very talented young man. Who will be missed.

R.I.P.

Craig was a superb bloke and not at all big headed about his abilities, he was at a trackday at cadwell a couple of years back and he was inspiring and offered advice without being patronising...what a bloke..my condolences to his family.
how about a nice BIG cup of shut the f4ck up?
