With so many riders missing the line, I'm surprised there wasn't a dirt path carved through the grass at that one corner. It gave the impression of widespread chaos. Are there times that they open the track to the general public ?

Awesome.... so many Offs at the same turn. And really, target fixation on a bicycle (at 6:10)?

That was good. Better than Rickey Mouse or whatever.
A couple brutal hits but most walked away. Fast fun with the chance of getting run over by a car.

What is it the riders at the IOM TT say, it takes years and hundreds, (thousands?), of laps to ride the course at speed?

Curious about crash at ~4:42 The guy looks down and there is almost no stopping. Brake failure? very weird.

I love watching these. Not so much to watch folks get hurt but i like dissecting the moment of fuck up and why they crash.

Why so many front end washes at the entrance to the turn? Are they grabbing too much front brake for conditions/tire?

Many seem to be because it just looks cold and wet to me. Many were not even on the brakes.

Thanks for the linky. I grew up about 70 miles south of it so I have an idea what the weather is like. So then just cold, slick conditions on cold tires? The entrance speed on some of them seems so slow and then bam down it goes.

Curious on the process after a bike is downed. Doesn't seem like they red flag the course or anything. Is it up to the rider to find a way to pick up or retrieve their own moto?

Nurburgring. I watched F1 and Grand Prix moto racing there from 60-63 and got to drive my Simca Aronde around it!

Unless the crash is injury or blocks the track, the track stays open.

That was before my time there: 70-74 and again from 76-78.
