You guys are amazing! Thanks again.

By accident I have come across free video footage of Marquez's highside at Lukey. Well, I suppose it's on crash.net as well by now. However, the MotoGP website has it towards the end of a piece where the riders comment on the new surface.

The vid is here. First three-quarters is nothing but talking heads. The Marquez crash starts about 1:35.

Probably the angle but I can barely believe how early he is getting on the throttle into there.

Edit: Looking at it again, it wasn't really a highside - he caught it!! Just. Got very loose and brought it back and fell off the low side. Hence the picture. Still looked hard on the shoulder but so close to way worse.
