after watching the video several times I agree the other rider did a stupid mistake but I think he is just a bit green. looked like he had tunnel vision going for that smooth part to enter turn 1 not even think of his surroundings. You think as he got closer he would see TM but that tunnel vision got him imo. I wouldnt expect him to come on line and admit his mistake. Probably scared he will get hardcore flamed by everyone. Hopefully he learns from this mistake to not do it again and admit that he DID make a mistake incase he is reading this.

Tankmonkey heal up bud. never met you but hate when I see riders get hurt doing what we love. especially when its cuz of someone else screw up.

This was an L3 crash. If he was "just a bit green" than his mistake was signing up for the totally wrong level, and then trying to put in laps at that level's pace.

For my part, I never met him AFAIK, and I don't recognize the bike (or riding style ).

I'm sure the TD org knows who he is - I believe they are required to report on track incidents to DPS, but I haven't asked about it and wasn't planning to.

Hopefully this info gets out to the other orgs just in case he rides again, but I have no idea if that kind of info gets shared between orgs or not.
