A video has surfaced on social media showing two motorcyclists fighting each other during the first stage of the Costa Rica National Motorbike Championship.
Bikers Marion Calvo and Jorge Martinez clashed during the first stage of Costa Rica's National Motorbike Championship, JacarandaFM reported.
Briefly.co.za gathered Martinez retaliated after Calvo stopped his bike. Martinez threw a punch at his opponent, knocking him and his bike down.
Calvo then got up and pushed Martinez as he was busy walking away. The two squared off again but decided to leave it there. According to several reports, both riders have been banned from racing for two years.
Social media users were left with mixed reactions - some felt the behaviour was disgusting and unacceptable while others found it hilarious.
Twitter user @apanbest commented: "Road Rash: The Movie."
Bruwer van Vrede, who goes by the Twitter handle @Bruwer6699, wrote: "Why would you punch a guy in the head who is wearing a helmet. Seems stupid."
Another tweep, @190Colditz, added: "Saw this at the weekend. Still laughing."
Maura Perry, @Maurajean50, said: "As a Corner Marshal, I find this very disturbing. I hope the sanctioning body has terminated this rider's privilege to participate."
