he does appear to be the king of saves.
It looks terrible. 3rd world, indeed. I would much rather sit at Siberia.....
Should have seen the first WSBK race weekend where the podium finishers had to walk a couple of hundred yards in full leathers after racing in tropical heat to get to the crappy podium. Track management found some golf carts for the next day but its still a jankey set up. However, I understand how important the market is for Dorna and manufacturers.
At least they actually have a covered grandstand....but having worked in Thailand a few times, I know exactly what you are saying...
All very superficial....
I'm just looking forward to the grid girls.
The ones that you.... Can't really tell?

Not positive he saved this one, not sure if this was in warm up or the race.
he had one like that in the race, I wouldn't have bet on him saving it but he did.
just guessing, but possibly his warm up crash because you don't see any other bikes around him... oooo almost forgot this is the non-spoiler thread.
You naughty, naughty boy. But I think that slipped through the non-spoiler go/no go gauge.
In at the deep end.
He sure did save that one - https://streamable.com/8on8v
But not this one - https://streamable.com/zuwhs
Both from warm-up (not race spoilers - warm-up banter only for the softies amongst us)
Thanks for those. Love the little glance to the right after the save, like he was saying "Y'all see that?"
On the second one, he sure tried to save it, held onto it as long as he could. You can see the elbow go down as he tried to get it back on the wheels. Amazing, even though he didn't right it..... this time.
man those reflexes,and balance.Most people including most of the motogp paddock just could not regain their feet like that.Most try to stand up to soon and fall over again .It takes a special kind of awarenss to be able to do that.The same spatial awareness is apparent when he does his on the fly jump from bike to bike.He is 1 of a kind I reckon
Wish him the best. Appears that Australia's presence in the World Championship is at something of a low point, not unlike the US's. Our Joe Roberts is giving it his best in Moto2, as is your Miller in MotoGP. Perhaps Toparis is your Star on the horizon.
Thanks for pointing him out, will be watching him with interest.
He's had a fair bit of practice standing up after crashing though...
Wouldn't be expecting too much. Tough gig, older bike, crew not so familiar with it... etc etc. But considering he's only been road racing for 2 years, he and everyone around him has to be happy, yeah?
Have a crack young fella!
Absolutely, have to put it all in perspective. Good that he has the 2 races to acclimate/improve, and not just a one off.
Roberts has been placing significantly higher than his qualifying would suggest (except for the DNF last weekend) so you do have to look for the positives.
Not sure if anyone else is a fan of Mattia Pasini, but there are two articles up on Crash that are a great read.
I don't think these have been posted previously. My apologies if they have been.
Pasini has been one of my favorite riders/racers for years. I am simply amazed with how he has reinvented himself throughout his return to the GP paddock after being absent in 2015. I hope it continues into 2018 and he emerges as a serious title contender in Moto2.
