I just watched the races on the DVR last night. That was nuts! I had to rewind a few times to verify that I actually saw that. I wonder where it landed?

It seems as if it just disappeared! Probably went to the same place that sox in the dryer go to!

That boot goes flying off the screen faster than any of the other parts. I was watching Sunday morning and instantly thought of Russel when Fabrizio didn't move. I was sitting there thinking 'oh my god, stick your hand up so you have a chance'. It's amazing his leg didn't get destroyed.

I saw it live and rewound it a few times. It was amazing.

I saw this Sunday. My understanding from years of track riding put your hand up if you have problem.

I think I read his boot landed in the pit lane.


And for anyone who didn't see the race, Michel was basically uninjured. Although the guy that hit him broke his arm.

I don't doubt that at all. Did you see how violently that bike flipped him in slow-mo?

This video shows the behind angle, I think that the damage to his arm was actually from the initial impact, but then he gets tangled up in his bike horribly.

This video also shows Checa and Kiyonari getting together, making it two weeks in a row that Ten Kate boys have taken each other out.

(the rear angle is at 3:00)

I guess the camera never caught the leprechaun's dumbass mistake in the first race? That little peckerhead just doesn't know when to back it down a notch or two.
