Well,I've paid my dues to the bank of pain.

But, was curious what happened,it was his first race back and seems odd how the bike revs and smokes like it tossed the chain and busted the case oiloing the tire.

You can't find much about it.

There have been a few rumours flying about, stone smashing the sump, drain bolt coming out etc. One thing for certain it seems a mechanical...very sad.

there are reports that he bottomed out in a fast section, and that it ripped the sump plug out and put oil all over the rear wheel,

and that video shows the smoke which would support that theory,

Since then or since Mann there have been 3 or 4 more deaths.

Watch one of their practice sessions from on board and it's easy to see why.

Man that’s just....not if you’re gonna die. Just when.

Those guys are crazy. And it really goes to show how Invincible you feel on those bikes before tradgedy happens.

Definitely the most insane type of race there is haha those guys have to believe in their skills 100 percent and at their speeds, that’s impressive
