Shame, such a talent, on a slow bike, seems like the team has taken on too much, greed mr buckmaster. Give sam a faster bike and don't let him put him self in a bad position again.

@kev182. What a thoroughly stupid statement. Lowes was riding on the very edge, a place where normal people never venture. The top riders do that all the time, which is why they are the best. This time he was unlucky, but he'll learn and be back stronger than ever. Bear in mind he's still young and in his rookie year.

I wish you lot would give over with the bikes too slow crap !! Young sam turned the bike inside Scassa and carrier more corner speed on a tighter line then opened the throttle a little earlier probably than normal. Tyres will only grip so much, and if laid over too far with too much power will I'm afraid eventually do exactly what happened. Young Sam is just like every other young Supersport rider, you don't know the limit until you push beyond it. Damb shame, I agree but Sam will learn. !!!!

Sam was trying too hard too early in the race.He is still young so he will learn race craft at this level.Things like dont bin it trying to win on lap 6 and dont lead on the final lap at Philip island cause everyone will slipstream past you on the run to the flag.
