It happened no less than twice that race. It is actually not all that uncommon. Normally it is not someone running in the top 10 though, so it doesn't get caught by the cameras as often.Redmenace said:When was the last time a rider in MOTO-GP got taken out by an outright collision like that from a passing rider? It doesnt really seem to happen all that often at all.
Actually, Pedrosa was still technically in the hunt for the championship. Though it would have been such a long shot that it would more than likely never have ended up with him on top. As for team orders, if you read one of the recent interviews with Hayden, he does say there were no team orders. Sucks for Nicky...but it is racing. No matter who wins this year, I am still happy that I got to see all the fun! For once it wasn't the "Who will come in second to Rossi" show. This year had great racing with very few blowouts...except for Caparossi and Marco.CopperTL said::angry Awesome pics....I love those!
unfortunately the situation sucked for Hayden. Personally, the way he has been riding the last part of the season I hate to say it but I think he has officially lost the championship.
Pedrosa needs to be kaned for that stupid move! Seriously, WTF was he thinking.....when your not in the run for the championship you don't challenge your teammate who is leading the championship :chair
You'd think there would have been some team orders to back off Hayden or protect him.
