Riders fight during motorbike race

Riders Marion Calvo and Jorge Martinez have been banned from racing for two years after fighting on the track at Costa Rica's National Motorbike Championship.

Two motorbike racers have been handed lengthy bans after incredibly fighting each other on track during Costa Rica's Championship race in February.

Jorge Martinez and Marion Calvo started throwing hands after colliding with one another during the first round of Costa Rica's National Motorbike Championship.

One of the riders even ended up riding as a pillion passenger on the other's bike after the collision, moments before the brawl began. 

The extraordinary scenes have led to the Latin American branch of the International Motorcycling Federation dishing out two-year suspensions to both riders for the bizarre brawl.

The fight occurred after both Martinez and Calvo jockeyed for position during a close encounter.

As they made their way down a long straight part of the track, Calvo is seen to nudge his rival which saw Martinez lose control before clinging onto the back of Calvo's bike.

Martinez held on as his vehicle careered off the track and into a nearby hill, narrowly avoiding other riders in the process.
