Victor Steeman: The motorcycle star dies at the age of only 22

Victor Steeman (2000-2022) is dead. The aspiring motorcycle racer died aged just 22 from serious injuries sustained in a crash on Saturday in the Supersport 300 World Championship. This was announced by the Dutchman's family in a statement distributed by WSBK promoter Dorna. "Something you always feared as a parent to a motorcycle racer has now happened. Our Victor couldn't win that last race," it says.

Despite the "unbearable loss and grief," Steeman's family is "very proud" that his organs saved five lives and say they will miss Steeman "hugely." After his accident at the WSBK event in Portimao, the motorcycle racer was treated on the race track and flown out to the hospital in Faro by helicopter.

He suffered multiple trauma and severe head injuries. The 22-year-old succumbed to these injuries on Tuesday. In his short career, Steeman won five World Championship races and took pole position six times.
