For the second time in three seasons, MotoGP champion Marc Marquez fell from the lead of the Australian Grand Prix.

The Repsol Honda star had been caught out by a cold tyre in 2014, but took full responsibility for losing the front of his RC213V under braking for the hairpin on lap 10 of Sunday's race.

Fortunately for Marquez, just as in 2014, he was able to walk away unhurt and already has the world championship in the bag.

Cal Crutchlow went on to claim victory, ahead of Valentino Rossi.

Just glad he's ok, and he's humble enough to admit his mistake and explain what happened. Good job he didn't do in front of a load of yellow fans.

I thought that in a previous topic that Marc said that the shackles would go off. He didn't mention a thing about clip on's, fairing, fuel tank, rims, tyres would go off too LOL
