I dunno, but it's caused me to ride a bit more tentatively and that's never good.
I have seen the same thing on other bikes running tubes. My dirt bike now is the only thing I have with tubes. They go fast! The valve stem may have popped off as it began to slip on the way down. The hole could be small and did not damage the tire much...hard to say what it was...know the feeling!
