re: "Alpinestars have released the following data, recorded from the Tech Air (airbag) system of Marc Marquez during his huge Friday practice fall at the Italian MotoGP."

behold, proactive engineering intended to save lives and minimize injury. like dianese boffins, a-star boffins don't cross fingers or tote rabbits feet either.

Reminds of another rookie that ended up a champion. Lorenzo had some nasty highsides that first year! And those are before airbags. MArquez will win again this season.

re: "Lorenzo had some nasty highsides that first year! And those are before airbags."

he was the "crash test dummy". his inverted hangtime data is what's allowed all this to be. :) ross was never much of a major crasher till his leg incident. kudos to lorenzo...!!!

ps: in a few days, marc's going to have a chin like marv from sin city.

25g is the weight differential suffered by space Shuttle Pilots and crew when being launched. He is so lucky must be true then he is becoming an ALIEN!! Pleased he is OK as he is the most exciting prospect to help pull Moto GP out of the doldrums. He will learn and i expect next year we will see a totally different rider who knows the limits and you have to admire his courage getting on a prototype when you have crashed at over 200mph takes B*lls of steel.
Looking Forward to Catalonya

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.......Prof-x.

You can break your neck falling down the stairs at 2mph too but that doesnt mean MM crash was any less terrifying!
I would rather take my chances coming off a mountain bike than jumping off a MotoGP bike at 180mph thanks very much.
