Look at this pic, can you tell what caused the fall?

Thumbs up

Yes Mike that's right!

I ve heard of such accidents before but to see such a pic is different!
Nice picture eh? The right caliper is really flying!

I remember reading in a magazine a long long time ago that Eddie Lawson got badly hurt (broke his hip) when the pads escaped from his brakes during tests (in Laguna Seca I think).
It was so bad he had to lie down for a long time and his career changed because of that. He went to Cagiva after that.

Dunno bout more than one incident (Lawson probably would have made sure there wasn't a repeat), but I was watching the race at Laguna where Lawson lost one/both of his pads at the top of the corkscrew at Laguna Seca. Can't recall whether it was during the race/practice/qualifying. There were plenty of bikes on the track with him when it happened.
