Does this kid have talent here? does he ride hard enough? to all of you track people, learn to act like a human being, all it takes is a bit of humbleness and a simple gesture. Having won many MotoGP championships, Valentino the Great still finds it in his heart to give his sincere apology to Stoner regardless of his super star status, that is a person that truly deserves admiration.

I agree with just about everything said here but...

It's not the CMRAs fault.
Everyone, if they've met the licensing requirements can race regardless of their nationality.
And, racing doesn't cause people to be single or divorced. People cause that.

Heal up buddy. Hope to see you around.

I was not there... did not see it... just from what i read... this was an unnecessary accident that should not have happened... that said... it has nothing to do with nation of origin.. it has everything to do with the individual rider...he made a mistake and was simply not man enough to come and appologise and extend a hand...
this should have nothing to do with cmra, or who can race depending on where they come from.. it is NOT a mexican thing, it is a personal integrity thing...it does not appear that the individual rider has any.
Heal up quick Floyd...if you are up to it, come to the TMGP races this weekend, lots of folks there would love to see you...sit back in the covered stands or in the pits and relax and enjoy being a spectator.

Update on Floyd

Heal up Floyd. Being taken out by another rider sucks. I was taken out twice last year. Thank , I wasn't hurt too bad in either of those incidents. My pocket book took a little dent though. One of the guys that took me out was a complete . The other felt really bad and was very apologetic. Sucks the guy didn't come find you to check on you. Who knows the reason why not. Anyways, glad your surgery went well. Heal up and see you around. You're good peeps and hope to see you back out there.

Oh and on a side note, I think it's awesome for out-of-staters and racers from other countries come race in the CMRA!

Just curious, would you still think the same way if the person they hit was you and not Floyd?
Yes I would still think the same. Before I got into roadracing I raced motocross for 8 years. In that time I have gone down from being taken out and far worse injuries then a collarbone (broke femur). But that's racing. I understand ad accept the risk involved the same way I do now.

I totally agree with you that if you make contact with someone whether they go down or not it shows class and good morals to check on the other rider but if someone chooses not too applogize then it is what it is. However, if your RACING and get hit that happens. Watch the ama races. It happens every week.

x100. It just happened that these guys were Mexican. It has nothing to do with their nationality and everything to do with how they are as a person. Like Enoc said, he got hit and went down by a guy who was an about it afterwards. He was American. I have another friend that got hit at a TWS (Texas World Speedway) race last year and they didn't come to apologize either.

Let's just ban racing

And it's hilarious to hear the cop outs from the people that have never been to the track that they will never come to the track 'if this is the attitude of most of the riders'.

Really?

ONE incident like this in SEVEN HUNDRED + ENTRIES that weekend, but now it's the attitude of most of the track riders?

BTW, some insurance companies will still cover you as long as it's not a timed event.

Ouch! You'll heal up soon. Broken collar bones heal quicker than most. Good luck.

Imo, CMRA should not allow people without legal residency to participate in any race at all, this will prevent future incidents like yours from happening.
Haha. If only that GSXR trailering all that lawn equipment hadn't been out there...
