Default Poor Rossi

That Rossi accident looked weird. Just before turning into a right hander he suddenly flipped like hit by a bus. I wonder what really happened. Judging by how he checked the telemetry details afterwards the poor guy didn't know what happened himself. Or maybe not so poor.

I think he hit one of those nice bumps right at hard breaking time. Front just jumped out from under it while he was still mostly vertical.

If only he had Street Skilz, he'd have known how to DEAL with potholes and frost-heaves............

It's too bad Nicky's not on a factory Yamaha this year.

"Colin Edwards gave an uninspired performance for his fans, starting and finishing in fifth place despite having Rossi and Pedrosa crash out in front of him. This was an opportunity for him to visit the podium for the first time this year"
He finished second at Donington a month ago.

Actually a street rider wouldnt even make qualifing. He was said to be off line and on the dirty part of the track, thats why he crashed. But according to you guys the track is so clean and has no obsticles, bumps, or debris.
