How many pro racers could have saved this? (old one, but still good)

It's not clear what's going on. The tires look to be in line and not sliding. From the body position, it appears that whatever needs to be done, Val's already doing it, albeit I'm baffled by what it might be. All I can think is maybe he's already picked up the bike some from tucking in the front and is now climbing back on?

If Rossi can't save it I'm not too sure how many could.:2cents:

He DID save it

Finished on the podium

Basically, he tucked the front, slid his [email protected]@, somehow kept the bike upright, hopped back on and kept going.

:eek: This guy must have been hanging on for dear life. I would love to know what went through his head.


The zip file contains a 840kb MPEG movie file. It's clean.

If it's the lowside that he saved then he did bin it soon after. I'm not downloading the file to see if it is the one.
