TRAGEDY: British biker dies after crash at Macau Grand Prix

Bradbury will go down in Olympic folklore after winning gold from last place in the 1000m speedskating final at the 2002 Winter Games, after four competitors wipes out on the final bend.

And on Sunday, Ticktum channelled Bradbury when Ferdinand Habsburg and Sergio Sette Camara crashed just before the home straight of the F3 race in Macau.

Habsburg and Sette Camara were locked in a fierce battle when Sette Camara spun into the barriers going around the final corner, as Habsburg ran too wide and hit the also hit the wall.

Ticktum couldn't believe his eyes coming into the straight, cruising past his fallen rivals for a remarkable victory.

Perhaps the only thing more epic than the final stages of the race was the commentator's reaction, which you can hear in the video above.

"What a finish!" he said. "I've seen some close finishes in my time here but that just takes it all!"

There was a similarly crazy moment in Macau on Saturday, as a 12-car pile-up caused mayhem and millions of dollars worth of damage.

It was a very sad weekend in Macau as British motorbike rider Daniel Hegarty died after a crash in the bikes race.

The 31-year-old Topgun Racing Honda rider crashed at the Fisherman's Bend on the sixth lap of the race of the tight street course and died of his injuries en route to hospital.
