I’ve seen this in AMA flat track racing... one was so close the rider’s visor popped off. Yikes!

Hard to keep these from happening and part of the risk.

Thanks to barriers which stoped Zarco's bike. It was coming like a 150kg bullet.

Barriers stop riders though which sometimes isn't a good thing, so there has to be a balance.

Here is the incident I am talking about. Watch Henry Wiles' visor (#17)

That was the most scary crash (with no serious damage to any rider) I have seen in 30 years watching MotoGP/500cc :wtf:

Can´t see how to prevent this tough, it´s racing

The only thing I can imagine would be a bigger air fence. But that wouldn't have done anything for Morbidelli's bike.

Part of is the track. There are some other places too where crashing in a breaking area of the previous corner can throw the bike on to the track on the next corner. This happened in F1 when it was called A1 Ring I think.

Whatching this photo when you know the speed Morbidelli bike was going at this point is shocking, it´s a miracle it didn´t crash into anyone

This one is also shocking, didn´t know Zarco´s bike actually made contact with Viñales :wtf: . At first I assumed it was the effect of the photo, but the broken fairing is behind Viñales front wheel and fairing, while the flying wheel is in front of Viñales helmet, or making contact with it :wtf:

There are some other safety issues with this track and bikes that should be fixed too. Riders have been complaining that the walls are too close and in case it rains it's very slippery. Slippery wet track, speeds up to 300 km/h and close walls can be a disaster.

Looks like season is over for Marc. Hope Nakagami get better and better.
Should Marquez's recovery time extend to two months, there is a chance he could be back on his Honda for the final triple-header in Valencia and Portugal in November. However, due to the compressed nature of the coronavirus-delayed season, there is a possibility Marquez may not race again this year.

That was very good one. No one of us didn't know but even Oliviera himself also didn't know he will win.
Nakagami was going to be second until red flag, mir to be winner. Sorry for them.
