You sure it wasn't Colin Edwards that hit Simo...
All good X,just wanted to make sure you were aware of that tire info.Morning Stosh. We have to except there comes a time.
Don't need to check the video.. it was unfortunately Rossi's bike that came into contact with Sic's helmet.Colin Edwards on the #5 Yamaha was first to make contact with Simoncelli, followed by Rossi on the factory Ducati...check the video.
Positive. I watched the event live. Also the replay, as it played many times. Once I understood what happened, it made me ill. I couldn't watch it again.You sure it wasn't Colin Edwards that hit Simo...
From memory, Rossi's front tire hit Marco's helmet, and his rear tire ran over Marco's neck. The helmet squished in and then spit completely off Marco's head as the fatter rear tire also caught the base of the helmet.Don't need to check the video.. it was unfortunately Rossi's bike that came into contact with Sic's helmet.
Rossi hasn't been the same since.
I don't watch videos of crashes, I'm not that sort of person.
Nah. Turned it off by then.Did anyone else see the little smirk MM and Ezpeleta exchanged on the gantry as the riders made their way to the podium?
