That was rough.

So how long was it before those yellow lights came on? Because dudes were jumping into the corner and cornering between Marv and his bike for a few moments after the crash.

Brutal twitter video, happy Marv is relatively okay given everything!

This isn't the first time this year that a Khuskagas has hit neutral and crashed this year. Has there been any issues on stock 21's?

I work to provide for my family, I ride to keep my sanity.

Would think the pros do not have stock transmission, but my 2021 KTM hit neutral real easy when going 1-2.

Rough day.

Looked like nobody had Marv's speed on that track, too. During qualifying, the feed was following Eli turning his fast lap, and you could see Marv in the background smoothly and effortlessly reeling him in.

I also noticed it took a while for the medics to get to him. I wondered if it was because of the one that ran out in front of MacAdoo a couple weeks ago.

Not on my 21 FC350. It’s tough to get into neutral period. Kinda feel like that’s a good thing though.

He was lucky to walk away.

Weird crash. It looked like he bogged coming off the table. Not sure if that is a rider or bike error, regardless glad he's okay.

You’re right he should’ve said “hope his career is over”.

I think they just meant I hope he’s not hurt enough that he has to sit out the night or that it will have lingering effects. Announcers can’t call concussions from the booth for a litany of legal and professional reasons.

Think it's been more on the 450's.

False neutral ; it can happen to anyone and on any bike. That is 1 of the reasons I am more cautious nowadays, I have had 3 big mechanicals which could have/should been fatal, on the road, and although I didn't even get a scratch, that is f.... scary.

Glad he is ok.

Chanceability he races Tuesday? I hope for his brain health he takes a pass.

I didn't see any yellow flags while he was down on the track but could've missed them I suppose.

I read somewhere they were in Rutledge’s pants

That moment when you need that one last pop to get your front end up and you're in neutral. Dayumm.....

no flaggers any where along the rhythm section, where these guys are tripling out of a turn and quading over a table, of course putting flaggers in between whoops and a rhythm like that is dangerous too...

Willson caught neutral going off a triple practicing a few weeks ago. KTM better figure out what’s going on with that transmission before it causes the #2 to cartwheel!

What does it take for a red flag? Too much concern for tv time? Marv was an apex marker for a lap or more.

0 chanceability surely. He posted that he was concussed. One would expect at least a 7 day breather, if not 14 or more?

I’d imagine the transmission is the same but maybe that’s not the case?

Not lining up tomorrow. Hoping to be back Saturday.

I say this is his last season.Still fast but this can't be fun anymore. Mathilde might force him back in the saddle however.

These guys aren’t running same transmissions found on production bikes.

That Twitter video is 11 seconds long. Marv crashed in the first second. Not one flagger moved during the whole video! something needs to change!

There are yellow lights, 2 sets, flashing in the lane soon as he hit.
The lights face the riders, not the crowd.
I’m sure it’s been tried both ways but it was determined that having them facing the riders was far more important.
Why on earth would a flagger run across the track to a lane that has lights on it?
