    motomundo.net now seems to have 2 different commentaries.

    MM had an off at 200kmh today, shredded his leathers etc, went straight back out and went faster.... THEN went to the hospital because he was hurt. The man is hard.. very hard.

    .
    I watched the Friday practices at Assen on Motomundo and got one of each. The TNT commentary almost ignored what was happening on the track and was more like a podcast.

    strange get of at turn 11 which is the fast right hander s they go down the hill. He lost the front but held onto it as he does,but the the back gripped and high sided him.Quite a high high side too,no tumbling ,although i have seen reports that he does have a fracture. I am sure there will be videos of it on you tube soon

    Buggered if I know. For which I'm thankful. This was discussed back when Lorenzo was doing imitations of a trapeze artist sans trapeze. They crash so often it's just another day at the office. We mortals go into a shock reaction, all wobbly at the knees etc.

    he made up 1.4 seconds and got a pass on MV to beat him by 0.003sec lol - with a broken finger and munched ribs, which is probably just a tickle to him now

    well, what a race.

    Guess who: mechanical issues, crash, broken finger, bruised ribs, contact - smashed screen airbags go off - on the limit, bugger it time to attack, 13->2 - being on the podium with my brother is better than a win.

    Crazy crazy race.

    I must say there is nobody else that shows the racer instinct and determination more than MM after his effort this weekend, with a bit more maturity thrown in. He seems happy.

    Good sprint by Martin.

    The race was epic and we have a new championship leader. Now Martin knows how Pecco feels about throwing it away.
    Just shows they are still pushing like crazy even tho it doesn't look like it.
    A few sore bodies out there that need the break. Vinales highside was nasty.
    Blimming heck Trackhouse blew everyone non Ducati away this weekend.

    Quite surprised by the changes in Martin and Vinales attitudes TBH. The "me me me" seems to have gone from them.

    Watched practice on 3now, downloaded Qually and sprint off Reddit then Pleasantly surprised the race finished 1am and was up on 3Now b4 8am this morning so no downloading, good effort 3now

    Pleased for the break gotta strip the race bike down to bare frame damn cast footpeg mount lug has broken of the frame on No1 bike
    So its new Rings, 6 speed gear cluster going in, modded clutch basket, FCR carbs, see if we can see over 150hp from the old girl

    Be good if MM had some skill for sale

    C ya all in 3 weeks

    The paddock pass guys interviewed MM's head mechanic. He said the first bike he had was not right and so the one he crashed on was running just how he wanted. When he dropped he should have let go, but he tried to save it to save his crew working making the first bike work, which is why his injuries were a bit worse.

    Great to see 2 of the better riders out there who've been down on luck showing their real potential again, Franky and Miguel.
    Not a great look for the sport the mo with the Ducatis being so fucking dominant, I'm glad Pramac are leaving them next year, its just far too much of an advantage to overcome having that much data available. If they raced on Friday it'd be a totally different looking championship for sure.

    Pedro Acosta is spending his summer break not on the beach, but at KTM to work with their people and learn what they do, that lad has some serious fucking work ethic. MV to win at Silverstone, you heard it here first.

    yep - Mav could very well do that - Jorge Martin would get a little peace of mind too...
