Does anyone know what were the exact details that caused Windham to get a 10pt. penalty the previous race? I know it had to do with bike contact. . . .

Thanks Frakke! I like Windham alot, but even among pros--no esp. among pros--a good block has to allow for the opportunity to gas off to avoid collision, and after the apex of a corner like this, that is near impossible. The only options appear to be to be a t-bone or wheelie over the top and try to unload (and go to Windham funeral three days later!).

Note the trajectory of Windham's approach in that corner--he is ca. 290 degrees relative, and that at the egress of the corner! Alot can happen that was never intended, but that move would have made me ill . . . .

But 10 pts.? I hope it doesn't put a chill on masterful passing in the future. Cornering tech. and skillful passing is probably the biggest thing that MX racing is all about, not drag racing down the straights . . . .
