..... Does not look like he paid any attention....AT ALL.




Was he the fastest to get to the corner but the slowest to get out of it?


Did he win his first trackday?

Easy to do when riding a 1k bike. Be as slow as you want in the turn and still blow past everyone on the straight.


That being said, i think he only had 3 track days? Depending on what he was focusing on he may not have gotten to "put it all together" as it were.

Still, im sure he feels bad about this wreck. Glad the rider(s) are ok.

at all after I saw him go over the double lines and have no lean on his turns. I said the rider behind better get a big gap behind him.

Counter steering is a myth, the only way to make the bike turn is hang off like Marc Marquez.

Not trying to add to the trash talk bandwagon or anything because I'm new myself and have yet to even attempt to push any limits...but after 10+ years and 4 track days, wouldn't you expect better riding from most people?

Maybe He just isn't cut out for riding at a high rate of speed? It's better that He realizes that now rather than continue on a path of self destruction. Maybe this can serve as a wake up call...
