Man that is bad news about Dean,hope he heals well and quickly.
Being young helps. Rode a lap with all those parts jacked up,that's scary.

Technically it was both a stall and a crash. He stalled it, then the bike fell over in the berm, and thus the "crash".

He even admitted how much of a bonehead move it was, especially while leading.

Waiting for the tongue lashing directed towards the asterisk crew for letting him get back on the bike.

hey you brought it up not me but since you did. given the laundry list of Dean Wilsons injuries it would appear that assuming Asterisk checked him out that the overall system of how riders are allowed to get back on the bikes is lacking and in need of review. you plant it into the ground like that no way should you be getting back on the bike you're a danger to the other riders let alone endangering yourself. he's lucky to be alive that kid is busted up. not good to have someone take that kind of an impact and the ultimate decision to get back on the bike is the riders? there has got to be a better way. for a heat race no less?

It IS a little more like real racing.

1 brake,a steel shoe,sideways as dog intended.

Of course I may be biased.

Was there any report of injury afterwards? (I went to bed after the checkered)
He said he had a concussion and is fine. That is what my daughter told me, She follows him.

He was done after round 2, you could see in his eyes Wilbur broke him.

Did Dungey try a desperation move that didn't work? Seems like it but perhaps we'll never know.

From what I saw RV and RD where coming up to some lappers just before the sand section and RV got past, RD got held up.

Blake Wharton was penalized four positions for re-entering the track in such a way that it gave him an advantage. This was after he lost the lead due to his crash in the whoops. His 5th place finish is now a 9th. Looks like the rules do get enforced as long as you aren't RV, JB, etc.

>"some lappers just before the sand section and RV got past, RD got held up. "

I think RV got held up by lappers,
RD closed the distance between them, (the crowd yelled)
then RV got by the lapper, and then RD got held up too.

I think the rider spacing pretty much ended up like it started... before the lapper.
