yeah, who needs traction control? I swear it seems as if he is switching into 2nd gear and only seems to be doing 20mph? Madness!

Wow, it happened as soon as he shifted up, I'm thinking a bit aggresive on the clutch/throttle and some dirt/oil on road = ditch. I feel bad for the poor dude.

He may have been too proud to switch it on... it does seems to be an S. I know my DTC saved my bacon twice, once in a gravel parking lot to tarmac transition. It worked flawlessly and I threw no gravel... hit the pavement and the power rolled itself on.

You shouldnt feel too bad for he guy.
He still is wilfried tallone, a french racing guy, and like in most rally races, he's not using his bike.

This video for sure is not the most shinning moment of his career.

Here is one video of him doing a little better:

Well he's obviously no stranger to sliding the tail out....maybe the hp of the SF simply caught him out. And yeah, I tend to think that if he's that good he probably would have had the DTC switched off.....D'Oh!

Maybe he was still in motard mode when he got on the SF. Those look like the mountain roads in my area.
