Caution! Run on sentence full of terrible grammar and spelling mistakes. Hard to make sense of that drivel. Not sure I want too either. As for the crash? That is nasty, hope he's alright and back on the bike soon. Proof of how easily things can go wrong on a MX track.

I watched the moto 2 races today. And all they said was he can't race until he has a cat scan. So that leads me to believe he might be one lucky bugger.

Thank you for the much needed lesson. Proof of how easily these can be repaired TT

I still don't get why he tucked. Must have seemed like the only option to him at the time. It didn't look like the bike was going ass over tea kettle until he tucked.

I knew you were gonna say that one. Bubba's crash can be explained pretty easily though. You can see when he throttles out of that turn, his front tire is off the ground. It never touches the first bump and he jumped it with only his rear tire. It sent him right over.

From what I saw when watching it on TV when they highlighted it, Looks like he tried to scrub and hit a kicker which bucked him.

How did you know? Did you use The Force?

Hope he is ok. He had the fast practice time of the day too in the first session.

I was actually amazed he thought to do it in time. I mean his options were to stay with the bike and get tangled with it, push off and go head first, or roll into the fall which was probably the best call but would have taken some massive nuts. i'd say someone at his level knows when the bike isn't coming back.
