Sucks!

Good thing WBSK grid lap times are extremely close, and they are all competitive.

Good for him. He's really changed and matured over the years. He said the greatest moment of this season was the race at Nurburgring where he crashed but then picked up the bike and fought from last place to score points. He said when he was younger he would have just left the bike in the gravel and walked away, but now that he's older he was more calm and was able to turn a bad situation into a good one. He definitely deserves all he's earned.

What a beast.

Started riding much older than most anyone who has reached the level he has AND kept riding long after most others would retire.

It bears mentioning that they were teammates and this was before the racing season had even started.


Now that is a great mental picture right there. The Roman Emperor pinned by some Kentucky redneck.

Yup, and wonder if the "fist fight" with Rossi is on video!
