I feel sorry for him but etf happened? Pretty inexcusable regardless, he had ridden so well too. Nasty looking crash by our man Nakagami, helmet to the back wheel :huh:

Taka's crash was horrendous when you see if from a certain camera angle, the way it snapped his head back. Disappointed the commentators didn't make more of it to be honest. Instead just wanting to apportion blame. Then you have Pecco and Rins moaning about how reckless he was, as if they have never made any blunders. 

 Nakagami got off to an incredible start actually and it could have been an amazing race for him if he hadn't had that accident.

He said his team's spot on the pit wall was too close out of the final corner for him to be able to read all the info on his pit board and so he was just checking for the gap to Martin behind off that and then using the circuit's big timing tower to keep track of the laps left. But he forgot Catalunya puts up 0 for the last lap, unlike most other places where it's 1, so when he saw 1 he thought it was all done.

 

Mega ride from Fabio to win so dominant, it'd looked all weekend that Espargaro would be favourite.

 

Bloody scary seeing that clip zoomed in how violently Nakagami's helmet gets pulled up by Pecco's tyre :blink2:

I dont know why Rins and Bagnaia were complaining, the front end of Nakagami's bike washed out, happens all the time to every single rider on every single grid. ITV4 made a big thing about Rins' landing, and I agree it was bad, but I must have missed where they even mentioned Nakagami other than him losing the front. That Twitter clip above his horrible to see

Yeah it was a crazy race, I dunno how they made it so long without crashes. 

 

There was video my dad showed me from Goodwood, with all the 500cc legends riding the wee track including Wayne Rainey, whom for the uninitiated was paralysed after a crash

Aleix finishing just behind Fabio was a good result considering his crash yesterday, he even tried to pass him.

 

Pity Vinales out braked himself and Rins used up his tyres

Once Bagnia knew he was there after Mav briefly passed, he Vinales didn't have the tyreeft to push hard like you say. A really good race from him tho maybe he's ot his screwed back on now? 

 

 Crutchlow is taking over from Dovi seemingly, such a sad return from Andrea as his battles up the front were awesome a couple of years ago.

Fucking hell how does Cal keep getting rides? Every time I think he's gone someone drags him back again

 

Yah, he had some good rides but nothing really that would be screaming get him back.

For those of you who play bike games, it seems Milestone have a WSBK game coming out tomorrow! Talk about out of nowhere. I follow them on Facebook and haven't seen a single mention of it at all. They do know how to make a decent bike game though and it's priced reasonably at £32.99. I don't think there has been a WSBK game in years has there?

I heard it's just a reskin of the current MotoGP game? Not that I've played that either, the only bike games I've got are the TT ones (which I love) and Ride 2 (this one takes some getting used to)

Sadly after doing some more research, it does indeed seem to be a reskin which I guess explains the pricing. Oh well, bit of a shame as apparently it has been 10 years since the last WSBK game. Ride 4 is excellent as well by the way.

The aftermath of the Moto2 race leading up to the podium was eventful!

 

The golf cart almost sinking

Then it crashed

The Arbolino and Salac rolling through the puddles 

 

:lol:

RIP Phil Read, passed away a few days ago, the first man to win the World Championship on 125cc, 250cc and 500cc

Yeah, at Millers corner too, at least we saw Alex and him making up afterwards. Speaking of which the shoulder camera they've been using this year is awesome, way better direction this week and way less cutting to pointless shots etc.
