Honestly though, in pretty much all Marquez crashes I can remember off the top of my head, the reason he never gets hurt is because he is smart enough to only low side when he crashes. I can't remember a single time he high-sided in recent memory, besides Assen 2013, and thats how most riders get hurt almost every time it seems.

All though I will admit, not dying at Mugello that one time is pure luck and he is lucky to not have ended his career right there.

Friggin Marquez with his riding on the limit. I swear in 20 years when I'm asked what it was like to watch when he was racing all I'll remember was hoping he didn't crash.

Maybe I'll remember that time in Austin, qualifying, when he did that run back to get his second bike.
RCV600RR and #22 like this.

He highsided a few times last year alone.

You're assuming that the electronics play no part in tyre wear. That's not a sound assumption.

He rarely crashed, and rarely crashes.

If this is correct, out of 27 times he highsided only twice(0:45 and 2:18),and neither of them were bad at all with one being really low speed. All the other 25 were low sides, so Iíll stick with my statement for now that he seems to have mastered crashing in the least risky way. Hence the lack of serious injuries

Go watch him in the 125ís , he can ride any way the bike demands. Thatís what sets him apart from the rest of the riders , doesnít bitch when things are going bad, just figures out a way to go fast on what he has.

Hello everybody.
My bet is that Honda-Ducati will fight for win, with Yamaha an almost distant third (almost because track really suits them) and Suzuki right behind them.
I think both ducati drivers will be on podium with marquez as well.
