Ok at first I vomited in my mouth a little. But then you said "Tron" and I kinda dug it.

Heal up Chaz!

Man, what a last lap. I wonder how long he'll be out. A fractured/broken vertebrae is no joke. I've never really liked or disliked Rea, but he scored a couple points in my book. Stopping on the cool down lap to check on Chaz and then his post race interview really showed how upset he was. Seems like a genuine guy.

Shitty day for Ducati.

Length of recovery on that is all across the board. Just depends on the severity. He was trying to pick his bike up, so at least we know his vertebrae wasn't turned into powder.

That was a classy move by Rea in my opinion as well.

I used to run a full disc for time trial cycling years ago. Very susceptible to sidewinds and wake vortex problems. No way in hell these would work in SBK! But if used for land speed racing without too much crosswinds....YES!

That was a bad deal with Chaz,knucklehead should have stayed down. I'm glad it wasn't his neck, shades of SIC58.
