When you look at that photo you can clearly see the minute amount of difference between getting around the bend and losing the front end.All it takes is a few degrees too much lean angle and disaster strikes.This is how "on the edge" these guys are.Got to feel sorry for Pedro,but he had no choice but to go for it.
