I don't know what it is, but everytime I see of hear about these things, it takes me back to my crash 6.5years ago. It drags me down and brings all that sadness back. It very well could have been me I guess and that must be what it's all about. I feel for him and his family. I guess it was a good thing that he passed rather than live with a head injury and not knowing who he even is.

Enters turn 11 (right) ahead and washes out the front. As he skids out, the front regains traction and with his weight still hanging, they both start going inside turn 11 (instead of the centrifugal way). The bike is literally pushing him in, nothing that he can do (not passed out or anything) That is when he gets hit.
I was at the Texas World when I got the news and the only vid I saw was on YouTube. Later got home and watched the broadcast & it's obv he lost the rear end then it hooked up when he was pointed straight across traffic. Really tough to watch. We get into GP so much that it's like you almost know the guys.

I think you confuse turn 9 when he lost and recovered the rear, with turn 11 where the front washed out and hooked again. I think the video posted under my last post shows it clear.
Here is the explanation for what happened with all the dynamics that are involved, listen:

"Davide Brivio, Rossi's manager at former team Yamaha, denied widespread internet and media rumors that the 32-year-old was too upset to carry on racing.

"Many are asking about Vale stopping races. This is absolutely not true and I'm sorry even that I have to explain it," Brivio wrote on Twitter.
