Ugh. That's tough. Looks like the lead rider just sat up or something, right on the red line. The two riders who crashed behind him were going so much faster.

yeah, seems like the guy on the red line was going so much slower than pretty much everyone else. shouldn't he have gotten out of the way or something?

no, it's not your job to get out of the way, it's your job to hold your line, which he did. it was the rider underneath that tried to come up and over when there wasn't room and tried to force his way up that started the crash.

And Eurosport. One of the kids that touched down was Dave Sanders' rugrat.....he'll have had him behind the motorbike the next morning for a brisk 150km.
