I wonder if they were using a car tire. I have never heard of tread separation in this manner on a motorcycle tire.

The tread came of and got stuck in the wheel well locking up the rear wheel.

I have seen some cases of partial tread separation on a motorcycle tire, but on low quality really old tires. and even then only parts separate, not an entire tread.

It would be interesting to know more about this crash.
