Man, they never showed how he lost it during the race.
Guess the rear just dropped off the edge while he was on the gas.

I'd be surprised if they did'nt turn in his helmet.
Would probably cost him his job.

You aint lying. I like seeing the racing from a stationary camera like that.
Does a better job of showing their speed.
I'm surprised Haga did'nt get caught up in that.
He was right on top of him.

Yeah, looks like his rear tire slipped into the grass and spun up and then caught when he got back on the track and bucked him.

It pays to have X amount of years of experience at a fast circuit like Assen.

But still.....Spies showed us what he's capable of in Race 1. The guy is one sick fvcker.

Race 1 was redamndiculous. Those last few laps show the cojonas and skill that Spies has. Race 2 made me want to vomit. Not cool. He'll be back.

I think he is still learning that bike tho, at the end of race 1 he mentioned that in the middle of the race it didnt feel right and he wanted to make some changes.. The way he ride, I dont think the points matter much. He just wants to win. I like how Haga said he is enjoying the competition.

Yeah, they never showed how he crashed when I watched it. They were making fun of the guy who "lost his bike," but when they found out it was Spies, they got super serious. The commentators suck!

Thanks for the vid...!
