No kidding, competition has some work to do. Hang some tractor weights on that fast guy to even things out. So much for rule changes and the attempt at balance.

Wow the crash of Eugene Laverty. Scary to not have brakes and have to bail off the bike at those speeds.

It'll be interesting to see if they determine the cause of Rea's sudden tire failure

http://www.worldsbk.com/en/news/2017...%20One%20crash

In an eventful race one at the Pirelli Riviera Di Rimini Round, Chaz Davies (Aruba.it Racing – Ducati) crashed out of the lead on the final lap after he was locked in an intense battle with championship rival Jonathan Rea (Kawasaki Racing Team).
At a circuit the British rider has struggled around in the past, he was able to put in a strong performance around the 4.226km circuit and was locked in a battle for the lead in the closing laps. With an impressive pace onboard his Panigale machine, Davies crashed with three corners to go, and Rea was unable to avoid him through the corner.
Rea was able to rejoin the race and finished on the podium, whilst Davies was transported to Rimini Hospital for further medical assessment, diagnosed with a closed thoracic trauma. Following checks throughout the afternoon, it was further revealed the British rider suffered a fracture of the transverse process of L3 (3rd lumbar vertebrae), as well as contusion of the left thumb.

Rea really had no time or place to go. Hell, what happened may have been the best case scenario.

My fear when it happened was a SS58 incident. I was very relieved when they both got up to go after their bikes.

My thoughts exactly. The similarities were eerie

Finally got to see the Misano race after returning from my Laguna Seca fun.

Wow what a last lap indeed. It was great to see Rea run over to check on Chas right after the checkers.
Sykes got quite the gift there!
