Poor bugger . Looks like some target fixation after an unexpected bar movement. How is he doing? All the best for a speedy recovery.

Looks like he just f/u...simple as that. Seemed to have gotten close to the edge in the preceding righthander and rolled it on at the exit... perhaps still rattled and off-balance, going hot, wide and way late into the lefty, spooked at the slimy bit, splat. Only a 2 outta 10 for artistic expression though....looked like he came down like a sack of wet shyte.

I certainly know the sequence well , got plenty of practice

Yeah, all mucked up coming out of the right and doing everything too late for the left. And listening to terrible music...

He has 3 broken ribs but hopes to be back on the bike in 3-4 weeks.

Lovely deep gravelled corners, just enough to upset your line if you,

A: start singing to the tunes in your helmet.

B: Admire the views mid corner

C: Think your in a rally car when in fact your not

D: Ambition outweighs ability... which is my perferred option...

Wishing the guy a speedy recovery!

Cheers Doug.
