Just seen Tommy Hill crash and take out Ellison then re-mount and crash dropping fluid which caused a multi-bike crash.

That now hands the title to Kiyo unless he drops it in both races - which obviously is very unlikely.

Before the first crash I noticed that Ellisons bike was smoking from the bellypan area on some corners each lap so I guess his bike might not have lasted the race.

It's all gone a bit pear-shaped for Hill.
Seeing his bike on fire in the gravel trap with absolute chaos around, Ellison was already dusting himself down having been knocked off by him a lap earlier, then with numerous riders going down on the oil from the second off, I really do not know how much sympathy i can spare for the guy....

Im sure he didnt mean to cause it, but...... ouch....

He obviously didn't mean to do it - the first crash was just a mistake - the second crash came from the bike already being damaged.

I feel sympathy for Ellison, Tommy and all the others - a shame that a great race was ruined and the re-started race was a procession with Stuart Eastons fine pass on Brookes being the only highlight.
