Moto3 crash.

« on: October 26, 2016, 08:05:55 PM »
Last weekend saw young John McPhee crash out of the moto3 race and then run over by fellow competitors. His limp body is the one on the grass after the impact. He appears to have escaped with little more than broken bones. It looked far worse live.

Yes, I saw that. Two of them were collected by other bikes and it looked very bad all round. How fatalities didn't happen, I don't know.

I was sat there thinking "you've been given Cal juice this week" and then he binned it.

An odd rider, swings from nothing to champion material on a regular basis. Hasn't he got a better bike for next year ?

The name Brad Binder springs to mind. From "Who?" to the now crowned world champion for moto3.
Don't ever forget Brian, you were there to witness his first ever race win at Jerez.

Definitely one who should go far. As long as he's not like Kent who does not seem able to jump to the next stage.
