Truly embarrassing to have only 7 finishers and 3 actually racing for the win. I bet many of those 15 DNFs had undamaged bikes and could have easily continued, but the no pickup rule put paid to that.

Some riders in Moto GP fell once or twice today and still got good points. If they had the same rules as BSB it would have been just as ridiculous.

The no pick up rule is there for good reason.

Have a look at Alex Lowes handlebar-failure crash in Moto2 last year, and then come back to us.

One out of how many riders through the course of a season pick their bikes up and don't have a problem? Are you going to bring in a rule because of 1 incident when the vast majority do not cause a problem? In actual fact, you probably had a bigger point to mention Le-Mans this year in Moto3 when half the field went down after someone picked up and dropped fluid.

I'm not saying picking your bike up is perfect but how many riders crashed once or even twice yesterday and got back on, several to actually score some good points?
