Lorenzo gave it a good bounce
Oh boy €€€€€€€€€€€€€€€
This might not show....
Tis already fitted with the Go-Faster Headstock, very aerodynamic.
He's not having much luck lately.
He was lucky there ! Especially high side.
Maybe next year he will look on 2018 as his good year.
Nearly spat him into orbit. His back protection (and other armour) certainly earned its keep. Lucky man; that was a big crash. I High sided once. Never ever want to repeat it.
It's a really odd crash. What happened? Was he trying to slide the back in???
A high side isn't caused by a slide - it's when a wheel grabs the tarmac during a slide. If he was 'backing it' into the corner or applying power, or both, grip at the wrong moment would flip the bike.
I got that the back went out of line, and then suddenly gripped to high-side him, but you just don't see them like that anymore. Especially the rear tyre pogo'ing in before it bites.
I haven't seen a high-side like that since.... Lorenzo's first MotoGP season.
Have to agree, the light was most definitely damaged.......the rest of the bike doesn't look to bad all things considered
High side's will always happen Baldassarri 2017 was as bad as they come
A bit of T Cut...sorted!
In slow motion with the onboard camera, you heard the engine stop, then it spat him off.
Yep - that would do it .
I cannot help but be reminded of a group of people who entertained the masses a couple of thousand years ago...
Are todays riders yesterdays gladiators ?
How many of us would have that sort of smash, jump back on another bike and ring its neck again ?
Takes a special sort of bravery
50 years ago they were doing that and very few survived the crashes.
I did it for many, many years and lucky to come out without too many injuries.
The whole thing is very very close.
But 2000 years ago they got free seats and food.
