There are a lot of bikes Jon I agree, dangerous game though motor sport, crashes into the first corner from the start are part and parcel of the sport as everybody tries to get in front, most of the others are an exception to this

Could be something in what you mention but generally after a lap there is a decent spread of bikes, could split them into two classes but there probably would not be enough time in the day?

The Moto 3 crash is a tricky one, you could say he cut him up but he could clearly see him too?

The majority of them in GP classes are highly experienced riders who have progressed, watch the 250 talent cup etc, about 4 1/2 foot tall and 12 years old, they start early and progress quickly

The worst ones do seem to be bike to bike contacts though

Accidents, look at Marquez’s career! Incredible really and I guess this dictates how successful you will be, if your body can take it and you have not destroyed it that much that you can still cannot be competitive

Watched a documentary on him a while ago, nearly ended his career when he rode in the 250 class, ran into the back of somebody and nearly blinded himself, think his eyesight has not been 100% since! A quick google whilst I’m bored

IT’S not supposed to be this way. If you crash 27 times in a MotoGP season, you’re meant to end the year with more hospital visits than trophies. Instead, Marc Marquez has been crowned as 2017 world champion as much because of his crash tally as in spite of it.

2018

On October 21st, 2018, at Motegi, Marc Márquez wrapped up his fifth MotoGP title in six seasons, with three races to spare. He did so despite having suffered his 18th crash of the season so far during FP4, the front washing out as he released the brakes in Turn 7. He led the MotoGP class in crashes at Motegi, and would continue to do so through the final race in Valencia, amassing a grand total of 23 crashes at official events throughout the 2018 season.

He had gone one better in 2018 than he had the year before, finishing second to Sam Lowes in 2017, ending up with 27 crashes to Lowes' 31. In 2016, he was a lowly third in the crash rankings, ending the season with 17 falls, behind Cal Crutchlow and Jack Miller with 26 and 25 crashes respectively.


What’s he on this year, must be near on 15 after the injury!

Imagine the cost for Honda, not to mention his 14 million salary! Big bucks motorsport £

Hi Chris,

Too many bikes on track in the lower classes with young and relatively inexperienced riders.
The sport has lost 3 teenagers already this year with a number of other horrific crashes as well.
The sports gotta do something and cutting the fields is the only way forward I can see

Didn’t see that one Jon, had a look, on you tube, nasty one that, fast too!

Air bags, armour and technical advances, more and more people are walking away from them which is pleasing to see

Hi All,

Well I think the world championship standings had a lot of bearing on that race.

Second moto 3 crash that caused the second red card was horrific, couldn't believe the all walked away

Been to Hexham quite a few times. Stop in a nice hotel in that area once a year and have a weekend up the north east, some really nice places

Rat boy wins, great ride must say, is he really back, that’s the question, looks like the bike was set up right, track surface was horrendous

WSB and JR, incredible, down and out twice in the first two races, cannot seem to get the front end set up, comes back and proves why he is a 6 time world champ, what a response!!!

BSB, so disappointing for Taz Mac. Great first race win yesterday, came from 13th on the grid to win, last race, the heavens opened up and he crashed out ffs, G Rea wins both wet races. Great day though for me

No 22nd,very tricky conditions on the pass with strong winds and rain and brain dead camper van drivers not stopping at the passing spaces, even had one expecting us to stop when coming down and reverse. Saw a few stuck on single track roads that were too narrow for them to continue and not possible to turn around.

Must admit the track limits and regulations are becoming a bit of a joke, they are or they are not, similar to the footy with VAR

Some great racing again though

Hi All

Loved it as usual, congrats to Bastianini's ride

Yamaha putting in a protest for Peco's jump start kinda leaves it all up in the air though. Leaves a bit of a bitter taste

It's a professional sport though with small margins and if they're gonna do Mir for track limits on the final lap, I suppose Peco's got something coming.

Penalty for jumps is 2 long laps, but I don't know what they'll do with this one if the protest is upheld?

Best

Jon

Was a great bit of racing that, loved it

MM is a great rider, I just can’t help thinking he is pushing it too far all the time, ditched it 18 times this season and the run wide cost him, great last few laps those though, the thing that makes the sport great!

Is it the lack of bike development time, not sure myself, I think others have come on and he is pushing it far too hard trying to keep up, people can blame the shoulder, not sure it is, the competition is quite strong, great ride by the rat though and I think everybody could see that he would press, press and press

The pundits were saying before this weekend his arm will never be any better and he will never ride at his previous level.

Yep great race and sorry great ride for MM you can't be a pussy at that level.
Yeah 70k for super, 50k for the desi when he bought it, the other bikes he has are similar value. He works in the city but is a great guy that loves his bikes and rides them hard not just garage queen's.
Off on tour Tuesday, can't wait.

Hi Chris,

Loved that, I'm smiling like a Cheshire cat again

Huge for Peko and thouroughly deserved , and Rossi lost his bet as he didn't cry

That image guy Honda hired for Rat boy whilst he was recuperating paid off massive, he was a completely different person in his post race interview, notably likeable (Which I never thought I'd say)

Best

Jon
