All rider were very lucky moto 2 and moto gp, hats off to zarco too he went straight over to check on Morbidelli even though he was also hurt. The look on his face says it all genuinely wants medics to attend

That was real scary to watch, a small twist of fate could have made that very nasty indeed. Glad they all got away with it and live to race another day. Great racing though

Surely Valentino must wonder how many times he can go to the well!! He looked shaken after the red flag.

Trouble is he loves the rush tooo much and that old " it's never going to happen to me" always gets in the way. We all suffer to a greater or lesser extent. But life is for living and wrapping yourself up in cotton wool and sitting on the couch is no guarantee of a long life. Even if it were it would be pretty boring.
I had my adrenaline rush today climbing a ladder to fix my storm damaged gutter. And before Tony gets in yes they do fly that high 😂

After all that happened last weekend, and more today I can imagine the racers will be glad to move on to a different track.

That must have been scary sh1t for Maverick 8O
I'm glad he got away with it, the same can't be said for his bike,

Yeah, that was a shame. Taka had a guaranteed podium and chance of second before the re-start. Credit to the KTMs of course, and to Oliviera's reading of the last corner situation.

If PE44 can stop whinging, he could be a good asset for Honda next year.
