    OK, I finally found these buried in the flotsam I call my dining room table. Now I have to get copies over to Jamie Dick. This is what happens when you low-side in Turn 3A and the bike catches some air going over the alligators. The sequence goes in order from left to right, top to bottom. Jamie was OK. The bike, not so much. I think the seat was the only thing left that could be re-used. Shattered front forks, I think both wheels broken and the engine case was smashed.



    Note the number plate high up in the air above the bike in frames 5, 6 and 7.

    Ah, the marvel of suspension compression.

    Man that was an evil ass corner. Glad it never claimed me.

    Remember the young Asian kid from Calgary who crashed on the exit of 3B and broke his arm two years in a row in almost the exact same place?

    Sure was fun watching the fast guys drift out of this turn.

    Now we need pix of Sean Smyth's new CBR600 crash in front of the tower.

    I also remember another racer from Calgary crashing in this corner and destroying a brand new RC30 he was almost in tears when he saw the forks and front wheel in one place and the rest of the bike in another
