At least Dunlop is consistent.

Should make for an interesting Moto 2 race.

Was that the Lukey Heights "very fast highside" crash?

Doesn't look like any part of a highside.

Oh yeah, it was a high side all right. He was trying to ride Lukey like Casey has been. Got it wrong. Or maybe it was the little whoop that a few of us have discovered....? Lucky to get away with it, it was a collarbone cruncher

Not on that pic, but it was a highside (sorry, bad quality shots from the live feed)...

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.

Bloody hell!!!
This posting pix and stuff has been really cutting into my drinking schedule...

This bloke today was unbelievably smooth, accurate, and seemingly on rails through my sector today. Not the fastest, but from where I'm looking, you should be putting your money on George........




He's on a mission!

We were flagging at that point in 2011, and we didn't even have to look, we could tell from the sound it was Stoner. Lighting it up from turn in, for a full flat track, opposite lock power slide over the top. And black marks from the front on the way in....no one else even close....(Simo working on it...)

Mayhaps MM been watching vids?

That's it for me.....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
