More than 1000 crashes in the 2016 MotoGP season

Bet none of them would be on a bike if they had to pay for it.

Free bikes, leathers, helmets etc .... I'm sure that would help anyone try a little harder.

I am happy to see that everyone has been right about bashing Cal. ;-P

These stats are really misleading. Highsides are almost completely gone from MotoGP because of TC. We are all going to push harder and risk a front end wash out when we are 4 inches off the tarmac and there are acres of run-off. Guys get up and ride off, quite frequently. There is much less damage to riders and bikes than before the electronic aided age.

Miller wins though as he had more crashes per race weekend on average (he missed a few races where Cal missed none).

I saw this a few weeks back before the last round and there was said to be a follow-up coming outlining the type of accident (front/rear highside etc as well as at fault etc) but haven't seen the full break down anywhere since so may have been a bs statement

The other aspect would be a wetter season, new tyres and hell breaks loose as they say.

Go Cal. I wonder if when he made his claim that he works harder than everyone else in the paddock that he's actually talking about his mechanics rebuilding his bike?

That's not true at all.

Yes, it is. Now what? Are you going to say "No, it's not"? We could go on like this forever.

Prove to me and everyone else that they aren't rare compared to other accidents in MotoGP, instead of saying nothing but that I am wrong. Thanks for any half-assed effort.

Does anyone have a similar table with riders who DNF on race day?

I wonder if the same names would come up.

For example some riders might have a lot of crashes while finding their limit on practice/qualifying. But finish most of their races. Or some riders do well when riding alone on practice sessions, but choke when under pressure from the other racers on race day.
