No rider aid will save you (and your unlucky fellow riders) if you are riding like an idiot:

Looks like he got in hot, his rear puckered and instead of trying to make the turn he stoood it up and crashed and took another rider out. So much for all the new nannies saving people.

Yeah it’s a press launch not a race need to be aware of verious rider abilities. I wonder if either will get invited to the next one lol.

I don't think the one coming from behind did anything wrong. Maybe it was very early in the session and there were bunches of riders too close to each other. But other than that why would anybody at so much lower speed stand up the bike??? Are there different groups at press launches? :-)

Yeah, they always preach it's the guy behind that is always at fault.. but honestly felt bad for him when the other joker just hooks right on a left hand turn.

No one would ever anticipate that. That's almost like someone deciding to drive in the oncoming lane then getting hit... He probably heard or saw the big group forming behind and decided to "get out of the way". Worst thing you can ever do. I've taught it over and over to MX students, maintain your line. Number 1 rule. The fast guys will go around, just stay consistent.

Not everyone is immune either.. I've had an instructor, yes instructor, in our L3 advanced/racers group, pull out to the left, with his hand up and off the gas, on COTA's massive back straight. I missed hitting him at 170-180mph by 6-12in, as did a few others. He didn't realize I was passing on the left, which is typical as you come down into the braking zone for the left hander in T12. This was an instructor who is supposed to know what he or she is doing on track.. sometimes people just brainfart and bad things can happen. Luckily most guys involved were skilled enough to react while moving 170+mph.
