    Visual evidence that racing professionally is a job, look at those calluses.

    MM would have saved that high-side

    FQ did an amazing job of qualifying after that high side. Reminds you of another tough rider that happens to be out from a more serious injury right now.

    Wonder how sore he will be in the morning.

    • Dirck Edge says:

      Very lucky he didn’t hit his head. No concussion to deal with.

    • Jeremy says:

      Hard crash. He’ll be feeling it. These guys are animals, though. I doubt he will let the pain distract him from his performance much if at all.

      Like Dirck said, he’s lucky he didn’t whop his head and get ruled out of the race.
