Well, seams are everywhere and we all try to avoid them. At least run over it with the least amount of lean as possible. As to many others, i had almost lost it on the exact same spot. Luckily, i was already hanging way off the bike (my usual style), and the bike was way upright position than Yorke's, so when i rolled off the throtttle, the bike was already traight and fully upright, and kept on going straight. That beeing said, if everyone maintains the line that gives us the fastest and safest run, the chance for crash would have reduced dramatically. But, the reality, is that we all try to run as fast as possible, and pass as many people as possible. And coming out of the bus stop, we all open throttle wide open. That's one fast launching spot there. In a way, i was part to be blamed for Yorke's crash. It was the last lap, i was getting too tired, and knew Yorke was behind me. So slowed down a bit on, and kept staying on the inside, because felt and saw Yorke passing me from the outside. If i kept it the same pace as the previous laps with Yorke on my tail, probably, Yorke would have not crashed, because he wouldn't have challenged that line. But again, this is all part of the game, and we all learn from experiences, so going forward, we focus on how to get Blake's and Yorke's bike (which happens to be my endurance team bike) ready for the next race. Period! : )

Hate to see this kind of thing happen. Especially at those speeds. Glad to see everyone is physically ok and hope the bikes aren't to bad. At least someone got it one camera.

I am finally learning to not worry about the people behind me, I need to focus on what I'm doing and do it well or pit out. But, you are not to blame. Yorke was the only one controlling his bike and is a very lucky man to get through what was pretty horrific with possibly only a broken pinky toe
