@ Mr Fang. The left bar is the clutch, the right the throttle, but yeah he looked like he was holding on and not being dragged (I thought Doriano Romboni with his leg stuck in the rear wheel of a crashing bike when I first read that dragging article). The thing I don't 'get' is why he held for so long. The bike was right over and he had no chance of lifting it up on his knee as his leg looked flat to the ground. And from that angle IF the bike gripped enough to right itself it would have violently fired itself and Marco into the air. It may have been a heat of the moment reaction to hang on and fight the bike. I still hope that he wasn't dragged, like as if his leg was caught on the underside and he was only holding on to avaoid...well...use your imagination. Crash net is the only forum I use, no idea what is said elsewhere wrt 'reasons'.
