The whole field seems to be dealing with more crashes and more resulting injuries. Rins, Cal, Pecco, Miller, Zarco, Petrucci, and MM were injured after only 5 rounds. That doesnt seem to be average. This implies that something is causing an increase in crashes & injuries - I blame the shakeups obviously. If the other riders were affected, so was MM. Suggesting that the shakeups had no impact on MM or his chances of crashing doesnt seem right.

And cmon, MM's riding style is to crash in practice and not in the race. He got a lot less practice during the off-season. So he crashed in the race, practically twice. Can it be that simple...

Yeah, maybe they need to include window opening section. It's the ONLY thing that stopped him this year.

I was thinking LeMans start AFTER doing 100 hand stand pushups. Make sure his shoulder is nice and worn out.
