Interesting debate guys dont often post notes and due to company policy cant view the you tube footage will look later but I am pleased that Max has been vindicated on this occassion his season so far has been a nightmare I just hope he turns things around because he is the only one in my opinion who can challenge Checa who seems unstopable at the moment. Saying that with every crash he puts more pressure on himself to perform at the tracks he knows well eg Czech republic. Good to see Camier finish for once ! On a side note I am sure I saw Neil Hodgson in Pizza Express Staines yesterday shame I didnt have one of my many Max Biaggi t shirts on.


MY SINCERE APOLOGIES TO ALL - Video has NOT been cut. Extra Slo-Mo shows the action to left of picture.

NOW to be Contencious - Looks to me that JR is out of saddle before MB goes down. JR out of control?? and clips MB??

Seems that way.

Sorry JR !

As someone who was spectating at MMP and having viewed the recording,it seems pretty inconclusive to me,what you guys never saw was that Rea got great drive off of the previous left turn and was level with Max at the braking zone but Max let up off of his brakes earlier and leaned on in,so i can see how both guys are blaming each other-to me?'s just a racing incident..

Max Biaggi looked very sheepish immediately after the crash and it looked pretty obvious that he played a major part in the coming together. I wouldn't think it was in Jonathan Rea's nature to deliberately blame someone else as he always admits his errors! Biaggi takes no responsibility for anything these days, he seems to be living on another planet - La-La Land !!

it seems someone couldn't resist putting on the novel "anti biaggi bias" tinted glasses i mentioned in an earlier post. statements such as max "played a major part in the coming together" suggest u watched the clip through your eyelids! there are two issues really... one: the crash itself open to discussion based on eyewitness accounts and video footage and two: the grossly misrepresentative account of the accident from jonny himself and his subsequent tweeting contributing towards setting the tone of opinion in the commentary... max was in font and on line to complete the rest of the corner, jonny could have slowed up a bit, he had plenty of space and time as he approached the start of the turn, but instead carried much more speed than was appropriate... look at riders immediately behind the collision, they negotiate the turn successfully both on the inside line with riders "leaning on them" from a wider line -but no crashes...
