Yeah, pretty amazing. I think it was one of the effects of the crash though, not the cause.

He's also got a better mechanic gluing his tires. I'm sure his rear must have seen more stress than the failed rider's front!

?

Is it just me or does it seem that something is going on with that front wheel/tire right before the rider loses his line and bumps the other rider?

Mabey it's the footage quality, but I'm not so sure that a mechanical of some sort didn't cause that crash.
IDK....
