Rider seems ok. He went into the wall coming onto the straight.... a quick part of the track and not the place to do it.
The rider(s) you and me have seen walking been the retired Derek Sheils and Ben Wylie a wee bit later. Derek in black white leathers.
The fallen guy wore some light blue leathers which looked a bit like Top Gun leathers.

Race declared and no big podium ceremony so it is serious at a minimum

I believe the rider down may have been Daniel Hegerty on the #8 Top Gun Racing Honda CBR1000RR. No word on condition.

WARNING: POSSIBLY FATAL ACCIDENT

There is a video here showing what happened... it was as bad as I feared. Obviously this report is unconfirmed.

not surprising when I even read here that the helmet came off... we all remember that nightmarish scene 6 years ago in Malaysia.

RIP and strength for the family, friends and entire riders pack.

RIP
Thoughts and condolences to friends and family.
A terribly sad end to what had been a great week of bike action.

Was watching the stream "as-live" just now and my heart sunk when they showed the guy laying in the road, terrible, RIP.
I am very sorry if you find my posts long and boring, I like to type and often go off on a tangent.

The Macau Grand Prix Organizing Committee regrets to announce that, following an incident during the Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix – 51st Edition today (November 18 2017) at Fishermen’s Bend, the rider of bike number 8, Daniel Hegarty, aged 31, suffered serious injuries.

The race was immediately stopped and Daniel was transferred to hospital. It is with great regret that we have to announce that the British rider succumbed to his injuries en route to the Conde S. Januario Hospital.

Daniel’s family and team have been contacted, and the Committee will ensure every assistance is extended to them.

The Macau Grand Prix Organizing Committee extends its deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Daniel.

澳門格蘭披治大賽車組織委員會很遺憾地公佈,澳門格蘭披治電單車-第五十一屆大賽8號英國車手赫加迪(Daniel Hegarty),現年31歲,今(18)日賽事期間,在漁翁灣發生意外。

賽事隨即終止,赫加迪被送往仁伯爵綜合醫院途中不治。

大賽車組委會已經聯絡車手的家人及車隊成員,致以深切慰問。組委會將做好善後工作,並向家人提供所需的支援。

That was one of the most vile accidents I have ever seen. I can generally watch an accident without being affected, but that made me feel sick.

RIP Dan.

Luis Carrera, 5 years ago, same place similar ncident.
The crowd was already gone and none of these 3 riders really wanted to go out on podium. They could have declared a result and gave a fuck on the 'celebrations'
