Its amazing how quick the crash is sensed and the air bag deploys,, safety systems at its best... Probably the reason why riders rarely take a step backwards mentally after crashes...

@guna

maybe that, but more likely the fact they are of a different breed than you or I. I am a mountain biker and I've had wobbles and crashes of around 30kph an hour and they scared me so god knows what doing the same at 350kph is like! And to get up and race the next day is remarkable!

Future champ for sure and a breath of fresh air in the championship!

How insane was the CCTV footage too!

he was going about 280 kph when he crashed, still pretty fast, but lets not confuse figures shall we. He also fell on the grass and slid off most of the energy, you can get hurt much more easily going down hill on a mountain bike than he did, he was pretty lucky.

OK, so we knew MM was fast. And we knew he was ambitious and we knew he was determined. Now we know he is tough as well.
There will be some very worried established stars on the next grid.

He's ok and thats main. Not only couldve he been killed but he couldve been left paralysed (Rainey was in the 80's or 90's) and thankfully none of that happened.
