^^^ I was wondering that too, it looks like he goes back kinda quick at the end before it gets the front wheel back down.

The wheelie was intentional. He definitely didn't intend on the wheel going that far back. It was a quick joyful victory(?) wheelie. If you look closely you can see him tap his rear brake as he is about to loop it, which in turn saved it from looping. You can't see it in this video but when the front end slams back on to the track he experiences the tank slapper from hell. Apparently he saved that as well.

isnt that biaggi?
If it is, he did it on perpuse. Motogp riders dont mess up their bikes just playing around with wheelies..

Not to take away from that link, but could someone help me find another vid? Had a lot of trouble googling it. I'm looking for the clip of the bike on the track trying to throw the rider off (highside I think) and the rider holds on then hops back on the bike as it keeps going?

Thanks :)
