At the time I wrote that comment, I falsely thought a copy of it had appeared on YouTube.
There are a couple of videos that show his accident but non of which are yours.

A guy just had one of those "oh shit I hope the cameras missed that" moments when he fell off on the slowing down lap at the MotoAmerica Superbike/Supersport race at Sonoma just now.... Sadly for him the cameras didn't miss it:



Sorry about the lack of audio, still figuring this stuff out, last time I did capturing firewire had just been launched :haha:

I've really been looking forward to this.

The first race of the BSB at Cadwell Park is about to start in 15 minutes.

Cadwell is such a great track, especially for bikes.

Absolutely!

Narrow track, elevation changes, difficult corners. All in all a very challenging and fun to watch circuit.

Fantastic days racing, as usual for Cadwell, especially the 'nobody wants to win' Superbike race 2.
