Reminds me of simoncelli, he attempted to save the front didn't he? It gripped, threw him back into the pack and was it Rossi who ran over his head?

On a different note had zarco ruined himself going to KTM? I feel he should have gone with honda. I will be very surprised if he can compete on the KTM next year, I think Lorenzo on a Suzuki might be competitive but it seems marques is gonna be even further ahead this time next year... Please please Casey stoner, come back and put it to marq
Rossi & Edwards hit simoncelli in head and back respectively. There where rumblings that season over the Bridgestone tyres being a bit unpredictable on losing grip in turns.

Simoncelli was wild......not that I think he was deliberately dangerous or malicious.....he was just trying so hard, and ended up riding way over his skill level.

Marquez is on a totally different level.....he's one of those following the paths set by the likes of Hailwood, Saarinen, and Roberts who effectively changed the riding style that was required at the highest level during their respective eras.

Laverty on the BT feed reckons that the initial wobble knocked the pads. Then when Pirro braked, nothing at first then it kicked in as he squeezed more and spat him off.

Holy crap glad he's ok. possibly one of those weird cases where getting knocked out meant he bounced well and saved him from further injury :shock:
