  11. Assuming there was no mechanical failure, I'm assuming the rider, for some reason, grabbed the front brake in a panic/absent minded moment, rather than setting up the brake & gradually squeezing harder.

    ie, "Oh shit, that corners coming up really quickly", grab brake, do superman impression.

    That's my guess.

  13. Shit, the guy in the light leathers was lucky not to have the bike embedded into the back of his helmet. Could have ended much worse for both of them.

  18. Stacking on a track hurts, especially the hip nerve.

  19. A good endorsement of trackdays, though. Better to do that there than going over Mt Hotham.
