Nothing like blocking on the straight like that. BS move. Lucky he wasn't hurt wayyyy worse than that. He narrowly missed landing right on his neck.

Could you imagine what would have happen had that been a premier class bike?

Their WELL into triple digit speeds by that point of the straight.........

Thank he's ok......never fun to see the front lock up like that on someone.

How did they know to have to camera on his team like that?.......

Weird.

you can't watch a crash on the Mugello front straight without remembering Nakano's at over 200mph

Sales of kangaroo leathers doubled almost overnight I remember reading.
Possibly Bridgestone's worst moment in racing.

Everything held except for the zipper.......

That would have been the end of it for me......I would have hung the suit up and called it even-steven.

But I say that now.......not sure if I would really quit.

That was nasty. Sometimes I think we ought to have 'bar busters' to protect our levers (and somewhat hands).
