    Oof. Same. Not sure I’ve ever seen that before.

    What could have been really nasty…even horrifying…was how Nakagami’s head got sucked up into the rear wheel. I mean it could have easily snapped his neck and paralyzed or even killed him. As it is it really jerked his head around like a toy. I literally gasped when I saw it. So close…

    And Aleix's effort at the chequered flag.
    Has happened before, but I can't remember it in MotoGP rather than lower grades.
    Id say rookie mistake, but he is not a rookie, over 200 races in that class alone.

    I didn't even see the head-tire impact when watching the main highlight package, I went back and looked for it after Joe's post and wow.

    Biaggi in 500, IIRC.

    Might be right. I do remember it has happened, just not who/when. But your memory is probably better than mine.
    I do remember his wheelie almost flip!!

    German GP most boring I’ve seen in years.

    Yeah wasn't much of a race. There was probably just 1 pass in the top few and that was Jack slipping by on a mistake by Aleix.

    Are you talking about the one with 14 laps to go? Probably the rear suspension decompressing as the tyre gained and lost grip over and over, and a well-timed shut of the throttle.

    My guess is an oscillation fed by tyre grip, TC from the ECU, and the rider's wrist moving about as he slowly came unstuck.

    Yeah that was a good one. I liked the onboard video footage of his feet going up and over
