That poor bugger Cudlin, black flagged when he wasn't at fault, lucky he completed the race.

Her qualifying effort was sensational! Had a lot of fast boys behind her!

Talking to Damo Sunday arvo, and he was SO wishing he'd had his IDM BMW SBK there! Would have figured a bit higher up, and actually had some fun.....
He and others were saying the grip was so great they were wearing through both knee sliders down to the leather in each session. Had to go shopping!

Oh yeah, and her big problem was the drama at Honda on lap 1. Held her up a lot, apparently....

Someone asked but no one answered.

Is that a cable actuated clutch on Edwards bike or am I missing something?

Looks like a cable clutch to me.
Little arm above the clutch cover would suggest that its the case.

Hell, my dirtbike has a hydraulic clutch, why doesn't a six figure CRT bike?

Clutch cable doesn't expand with heat?

Nicky's bike changeover?

Apparently Nicky had the fastest "bike swap." Does anyone know if there's a video of it anywhere?

Hijack alert

Regarding the cable clutch.
My 1985 FZ750 runs a hydraulic clutch but the Yamaha race bikes ran cable clutch's,King Ted won at Daytona on one so they've been converting them to cable operation for years,anyone know why?

I suspect cable operated system is lighter, more reliable and easier to adjust on the fly to racer's preference.

Great place to watch from mate , good score. a significant one for that kind of stuff.
Back in 2005 i picked up Alex Barros's toe slider and part of the rear hugger when he crashed out of the race at the hay shed, gives a little buzz, looking at it every now and again.

There has been a convincing argument put by commentators on the motomatters roundup that the key error was made by Marquez, who got distracted by his big moment over Lukey Heights only seconds earlier and forgot to pit.

That seems at odds with the claims made by the team and, apparently, Marquez himself. OTOH it seems to me more than plausible, especially since Rossi has admitted even he missed his intended early pit entry, having become distracted battling with Bautista, but luckily had a lap left in which he could correct that.

I wonder whether the error was indeed made by Marquez, but the team's contribution had been to believe that the lap when he failed to come in was not his last opportunity, and hence that their strategy had incorporated a fail-safe. The contrasting attitudes of Gabbarini and Marquez crew chief Hernandez pointed to in this piece would be compatible with that, given that Gabbarini allegedly had been kept out of the information loop.

Edit: actually, after some views of the "How Marquez took it to far in Australia" video, and a read of Marquez's comments post-race, the team's mea culpa is looking more convincing. The linked Speedweek article probably has it just right.

Another slight mistake, that may or may not have contributed to what happened with Marquez @ PI was that he clearly wasn΄t holding anything back. I understand, that as a racer he will always want to go for victory, but the team should have made him understand, that this time, and from now on, it will be about the title, not about winning every race, especially when JLo was in such devastating form. And ESPECIALLY, because it will be a really awkward race, with the change of bikes.

Before PI, Marquez could have finished 5th in every remaining race (and 5th place should be relatively easy for him to achieve), in case JLo would win them all, MM would still have clinched the title. So trying to run up front at PI didn΄t make much sense considering the risks. Now he will actually have to take at least 2nd place behind JLo in the two remaining races to be sure.

When exactly did MM΄s pitboard show him to come in?? That should prove, if it was actually the team, who got the pit window wrong. He was quite tightly engaged in trying to catch JLo at that time, and also had the moment shortly before, so I would not be too surprised, if he just simply forgot to come in.
