RIP: Juan Garriga

Racer Juan Garriga was reportedly killed in a streetbike crash today in his native Spain.

Garriga raced both the 250 and 500cc world championship from the late 1980s until the late 1990s. He also made a few WSBK appearances while Ducati was controlled by the Castiglioni family.

Garriga finished second in the 250cc world championship in 1988, winning three Grand Prix races that season. Garriga had a turbulent life off the track but was renown for his aggressive riding style.
