Well all 3 of these riders have got extensive experience with the 500cc 2 strokes and the 1000cc 4 strokes to make these statements ... oh wait a minute, neither of them have raced the 500cc 2 strokes. I respect all 3 of these riders but I don't believe they have the ability to make that judgement. Regardless whether or not the bikes changed from 2 stroke to 4 stroke, development is the name of the game and if they were still on 2 stroke bikes, I'm sure they would be going just as fast as they are today. I believe that the problem lies with the tyres being able, or not able in this case, to cope with the power and speed of today's MotoGP bikes :?

I don't think this type of injury can be avoided with adapted leathers as it is the force the person hits the ground or barrier with. You would have to look like a Mitchelin Man to have enough padding!!

These riders are searching for the very limit and becoz of that its not humanely possible not to crash sometimes..

We can only hope that equipments are good enough to avoid fatal injuries...Im sure the makers r doing everything they can to improve riders safety...

Beforehand we must also know that bike racing is one of the most dangerous sport out there....
