It's gotta be downing to crash, but worse when it's with lap traffic Looked like a bad spill as well, at least he stopped before reaching the wall!

If you're talking about the Tommy Hayden incident, it's funny how you think it's the lappers fault. Tommy tries to go around the outside of a pack of lapped riders and gets pinched out and then leans on the lapper with his elbows when he realizes he doesn't have any more room left and off he goes grass tracking.

Yeah I gotta say I'm a Tommy fan, but that one he definitely could've avoided and probably still not lost the position.

On the other hand, isn't it rather...typical/expected that most lap traffic will pull to the inside, at least somewhat? That's just what I've seen...

That is what AMA rules state when there is a blue flag, but that's not always possible. It's a lot easier to just pull aside after you have exited a corner, or down a straight than it is, when you get it right as you're getting ready to turn into a corner. You already have your speed set, turn in point, and are ready to go, at that point generally speaking it is safer for the rider to hold his line, allowing the faster rider to chose a line that gets him around.

I was right there when it happend...bad idea on Tommy's part. The lapper did pinch him off, but he barely moved his line oitside from where the previous corner.

Oh, I understand it's generally safer to hold your line as is, but I wasn't sure if he would or not, because some didn't.
