Crossing the Finish Line on His Knees

This is the incredible moment a MotoGP rider guided his bike over the finish line - while crouched down OFF the bike.

Niklas Ajo made headlines for his extraordinary finish in the Moto3 class event on Saturday during the Grand Prix of the Netherlands, as he quite literally dragged himself over the line.

With his knees bouncing off the tarmac, he miraculously steered the vehicle home without causing a serious crash after being flung from his vehicle.

Finnish rider Ajo finished the race in 17th place, ahead of two other riders who finished the race in a more conventional style.

Its shows the commitment of Ajo, who pulled off the remarkable improvised finish despite still being just 20-years-old.
