Too much front brake x2. Hilarious but sucks, I hope they are aright. The first guy hit his face pretty hard.

Hmm that doesn't look like it gonna buff out. Glad they're both ok. This happened in the session just before lunch. The double transport canceled our parade laps and hand the track shut down for over 2 hours.

Double endo. Yikes. Wonder if they tried downshifting before applying heavily on the front brake.

Getting too hard on the brakes. When you're not smooth getting on the brakes, the front end dives down very hard. With the short wheel-base on motorcycles, the back end comes up.

I wonder what new rule will result from this incident.

Before anyone casts any stones at either rider, I believe both were at fault. The girl (red CBR) was allegedly booking it on the straights and parking it in the corners. Quinton (white CBR), came in too hot, panicked, and grabbed too much front brake, crashing in front of her causing her to do the same as well.
