Couldn't find any good video sources so I made a GIF for you're viewing pleasure.

Honestly - it looks like it was going to be a clean pass, but then Roczen whiskey throttled and put them both in the dirt!

Kroc went wide and got passed. .
Kroc looped out.

Webb didn't do shit wrong.

It appears Roczen was thinking more about returning an aggressive pass on Webb than anticipating that square edge.

When did they collide?

Anyone else impressed by how Roczen made up 2 bike lengths in one short set of whoops?

And yeah, it was a mistake and not dirty at all. Roczen's rear tire starts drifting through the corner so he gets on the gas to power out right as the rear tire hits a rut and gets traction while stopping his rotation. End result is a high-side with an extra side of throttle. He didn't even touch Webb until after he was out of control. Would've been a hell of a pass.

The craziest part of that whole thing (among a lot of crazy parts)...watch Kenny's head when it hits the back tire in that slow-mo version.

Totally. Shame it didn't pan out because it would have been a good couple laps to follow

how anyone can think Roczen was trying to make contact (after watching these) is beyond me.

Ken's head movement was just nasty

Honda needs to look into how the traction controle is working

Watch has how early in the turn Roczen has his right wrist in the pinned position that bikes throttle was on the stops way to early for a normal turn he didn’t go into that corner to invite him over for some canapés

Transfer of power? Webb starts getting podiums?

Agreed.

Wasn't TRYING to make contact , but for sure was very impatient to put the move right back in on Coop.

Freaky crash for sure blink

In the very moment before the incident, Webb clearly locks up the rear anchor. No one mentions it.

|

2/12/2018 7:26 PM

After all instagram/twitter or whatever the fuck it's called these days, Roczen sitting on the ground is probably thinking - well this is a tad embarrassing.

|

2/12/2018 7:38 PM

Roczen did a good job protecting his left arm. #992 needs a new sideplate.

|

There's something happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear.

Looks like a brake check to me

Sidenote: with how violent his head was jerked it makes me think he's not running fox's magnetic visor anymore. It wouldn't surprise me if they have a more tradition mount on it somehow, after having them pop mid moto so many times.

Right there with Webb who stalled bike corner two. Still cant believe how Roczen fan boys blame Webb.. when this when that. Webb made pass and Roczen was too eager to pass back. Im not fan of Webb By any means but this wasnt him brake cheking or making dirty moves (this time).

Are you saying that is what pulled Ken's head into the rear wheel w00t

That seriously was a hard hit to the head and a decent flick of the neck! Fair effort for that vizor to stay on with a hit like that. Though was it meant to stay on?

After seeing that super slow-mo, Roczen is very lucky to only sustain the injury that he has. It could have been so much worse.

I have no dog in this fight. KR was on CW's rear wheel in control. CW didn't know where KR was exactly, but figured he was about to get punted into the expensive seats as a retaliatory move after he touched KR in the previous corner. CW brake checked him as a defensive maneuver, and all of a sudden KR is beside CW with no room, KR was forced to correct his radius and slid then hooked up and whiskied. KR gets into CW and the brake check plan backfires. KR is injured due to a slimy move.

That's racing.

That's my story and I'm sticking with it.

We've seen guys on here lately shred a finger from a brake rotor just working on their bikes... If that rear rotor catches him arm, that could have been real nasty
