Wow, that's crazy both got caught on video. Really sucks for both riders, hopefully recovery time isn't too bad for them.

you ever been skiing? Trackdays are suppose to work the same....the rider (or skiier) behind is always responsible for a safe pass....regardless of "parking it", it was the white bikes responsibilty to safely pass....all "on track" fault goes to the white bike IMO.... I would place some "off track" fault on the red bike if she signed up for an innapropriate level (if this was the case).

Agreed on the white bike's responsibility to pass safely, which he failed to do. I believe both were off line as well.

Wow that weird that he would be closing that fast coming into that turn on her with both of them being so far off the line. In the slow mo you can see the white bike's forks are compressed from almost the moment he comes into the frame. She does check up a bit which made him squeeze it more. Even though the rear went past 45 degrees he still had a chance to relax the pressure and hold it there while still scrubbing speed, but the little panic shift of the bars once up that high transfers the braking forces directy to, instead of through, the chassis. Once that wheel is pointed anywhere but straight it will FLICK you over even if you are easing off the lever. Once he let go the forks rebounded hard and wha la one summersaulting machine. What really sucks is she still had room to miss him on the inside. PANIC is the WORST!

To think I skipped doing this day because I thought it would be too crowded. Thank You !

were talking novices here its not like he planned on doing that. Modulating brake control while your rear is airborne and your your pants takes hella concentration. Thanks for the lesson though......
He shouldn't have been that close in the first place.

And how do you plan on defending the level 3 rider that did the same thing? I have actually seen that happen a couple of times going into turn 10.

and this is why I suggest everyone start with stunt practice before coming to the track.... I love this pic (headlights down, full moon, stunting and an antique bike) never once went over the bars....close, but never all the way.
