Ya know, he would have been in even worse shape if not for the curb. Imagine plowing into that wall head-on. Who the hell taught him to ride?

Looks like he had a hard landing though, Something had to break. That suit looked like it had no shoulder armor, or is that just me?

Imagine if instead of launching to the left, if he had launched to the right..........well the rider would have disappeared right over the wall!

I see knee, elbow & back. ...shoulder??? not sure.

Maybe it's just me, but it almost looks like it was staged. Not that I want to think anyone would want to stage something like that. I mean, someone who has that amount of gear, assuming they have been riding for some time, loosing control that easily?? And wouldn't your reaction be to hold on seeing nothing on the other side of that wall not knowing where you may land? :confused1:

Or he's just that bad(dumb?) of a rider...


EDIT: After saying that, now I'll probably do the same thing. I also have a Shoei helmet and Dainese leathers, it's a sign.

I think it's a combination of bad/old tires + new rider = Ambulance ride.

Look how the rear just slipped out with almost no lean angle. I didn't see anything in the road like antifreeze, oil, or sand but it could have been that too. I think he gassed it, lost the rear, and panicked.

Ouch! Looks like a bad case of target fixation and that wall was pretty scary!

Yeah, couldn't tell in the video, but I don't think there was a whole lot of give in the wall. :pinch:
