If you’ve never ridden at Laguna before, as was the case for “Fireball” Brasfield, the Corkscrew can catch you by surprise. It’s entry is blind, and the left turn leading in to it is sharper than many realize. Ever the racer though, Evans was constantly looking for the fast line through there and, inspired by none other than Valentino Rossi himself, created his own line through the Corkscrew. Unlike Rossi, however, the line clearly didn’t work. Worse yet, Evans was all alone on track. Valiant effort, EB, and thanks for running off in front of the cameraman!
