Too much front brake, washed the front. Been there done that.

It was a panic stab at the front brake. Looks like it was the first lap out of a trackday. Nice fresh cold tires.

ok what the hell even if it was a panic stab at the front brake. what the hell is wrong with him, it was smooth sailin unless the guy in front did something that we cant see.

I watched that crash 15 times trying to figure out how he went down. I didn't see the bike nose at all so if it was a "panic-grab" on the fronts, he must not have had it loaded at all. Could he have still been on the gas when he grabbed it?

I'm confused as usual.....

You can see the rider trying to tumble of the track on purpose. Wish he had a clear shield on so you can see his face!

Great vid!

Im guessing thats why he washed, the suspension didnt have time to load as he grabbed it too fast.

he was already on the brakes as he entered the frame. That's why you don't see the chassis pitch forward. A lttle too much braking indeed.

He possibly could've hit too much rear brake instead of the front

The R6 passed him at the beginning, it just looked like he carried too much speed after his pass. That RC51 spinning towards him is what you call slow mo danger... waaawaaawaaawaaa
