id like to agree, but that highside just looked like something not many people would walk away from easily. jeeze, he was already way sideways in the footage on tv. he claimed he hit 2nd by accident and the thing locked and slid up. (??) he was also on some pretty heavy pain meds, so it was probably a mistake to let him out. and he was winning for a few laps in england last weekend. i think he pushes too hard. even in faster he was crashing hard. some people it seems like crash really hard, even when its not a big crash. seems like olmstead does now, frank c will go through a period, dylan was really hurting himself for a while there. and then when ive crash, knock on plam, its usually just a fall down scenario. some other riders might be really close, but ive never bounced hard. youre right, though hopkins will kill himself before he gets a win. too bad.
remember the old days when guys who had the championship in the bag would give thier bike up to the b rider and just sit and watch??? id love to see rossi do that.
