Hugo Millan, a 14-year-old motorbike racer, has died after a crash at the MotorLand Aragon Circuit in Alcaniz, Spain.

The Spaniard was hit by another rider after going down in the middle of the track on the second lap of the European Talent Cup race on Sunday.

Millan was attended to by doctors for several minutes before being taken to the track’s hospital in an ambulance. He was later transported to another hospital in a helicopter but died of his injuries.


“Millan was involved in a multi-rider incident at Turn 5, with the session immediately red flagged,” organisers FIM CEV Repsol said in a statement.

“The Medical Intervention Vehicles arrived at the site immediately and the rider was attended to on track before being transferred to the Medical Centre at the Circuit.

“Despite the best efforts of the circuit medical staff, the Medical Centre has announced that Millan has sadly succumbed to his injuries.”


The organisers added that Millan had been enjoying his best season to date in the European Talent Cup, a series for teenager racers hoping to make it into the professional ranks, claiming several podiums “to demonstrate his consistency as he competed at the front of the class”.

“The FIM, FIM Europe, Dorna and MotorLand Aragón Circuit pass on our deepest condolences to Millán’s family, friends, team and loved ones,” they added.

Six-time MotoGP champion Marc Marquez was among the top riders who reacted to Millan’s death.

“RIP, HugoMillan,” Marquez said on Twitter. “My most sincere condolences to his family, friends and team.”

MotoGP said: “We are so sorry and saddened about [FIM CEV Repsol] rider Hugo Millán’s passing. We would like to send all our love and support to his family, friends and team.”
