MSRH LVL 2 Oct 18th 2015 Rear Cam Low Side

Tail cam footage of session 4 Sunday. Low side crash in the carousel at 4:31. On the outlap I was taking it easy to make sure the tires were warm andthe guy on the black CBR is right on me. Lap 1 we pass a guy who was drag racing the straights but parking in the corners and pick up the pace. BLACK CBR washes out the front as I'm pulling away through the turn. No clue why! Thoughts

Looks like his peg caught or he rolled off the throttle too much mid turn and overcompressed the front. Looks like a big guy on that bike.

It's hard to tell exactly from the quality of the video, but if you look @ 4:30 to the moment he crashes, looks like something wet on the track. You can also notice he is not leaning off the bike much. Therefore, he has added lean angle. Add all of those up and you have a crash.

I can confirm there was nothing wet on the track. I ran that same line just before he went down and after with no issues. We weren't really going fast enough to warrant really big lean angles, and yes he is a fairly big guy. Us plus 6 footers, over 230 pounders (245lbs in my case) tend not to hang off as much as the smaller guys for a given speed. I think he came hotter than expected chopped the gas then saw me still pulling away and realized he could carry way more speed than he thought and then tried to get on the gas and keep it tucked in tight at the same time.... adding throttle and lean angle at the same time is a No No.

Definitely looked like his body position contributed, possibly too much throttle causing the rear to lose traction. Hard to tell though

Like I mentioned above, it's hard to tell what it is due to the quality of video, but if you pause/play-step by step right before the crash, it definitely looks like something wet. But that's just based off the video I see.

Either way, I'm glad he is okay.

So hard to tell. Any minoot movement like chopping the throttle, bp, dust, etc. Too hard to tell with the naked eye. Laws of physics
