Did you guys see the crash in the 600's, the Moto2 class? :eek7: :eek7: :eek7: :eek7:

Reminded me of Barry Sheen at Silverstone in the 80's.

If you slow the crash down, Eggeter (Sp?) #77 has the disconnected front wheel and forks miss his head by almost nothing!
I wonder where that gravel road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. (Apologies to Mr Frost)

Very close shaves today.  Many guardian angels were working hard.  Hope its not the same next week. Scary shit.

I am on record calling for VR46ís retirement, but this year he is doing his team and himself proud.  Working hard with consistent clever performance.  Nerves of steel after that close shave. Respect Valentino :thumleft:

Hell Yes, to see Big Debris fly past you and keep your cool is special, he just accelerated as if nothing happened.
Once it sunk in he looked a bit shaken. Yes KR, Respect indeed.

Simon Crafar the pitlane commentator mentioned that his bike and leathers were covered in oil spray from the bike he nearly hit.

Moto 2 - Watch a 1:10 how close the front forks and attached wheel come down in the space #77 was in micro-seconds before. Then @ 1:12 the rider on the right hits the other dismatled front fork and has an instant flat that sends him off across the track towards the fallen rider.

Speaking of which, as a racer I loved Simon but was he the best they could find for this job?

Wow what races. I have been watching MotoGP for a lot of years now and have never seen crashes like that (Moto2 & MotoGP).

On the positive side, Brad ended up having a good weekend after a bad qualifying session.

Looking forward to this coming weekend for some more action :thumleft:

Agree  :thumleft: The guy really doesn't seem to be too enthusiastic as a commentator.
