Unlike road and track riding, coming off your dirt bike provides cheap amusement, both at the time and at every subsequent visit to your Youtube video collection. If you're considering hitting a dirt track on a bike, make sure you video it to show your friends. Afterall, if you did something stupid and didn't get it on video....did it really happen?

As a huge Ben Spies fan, this season has been tough. As if things weren't hard enough already, this highside coming out of the corkscrew was caused by a collapsed swingarm. Poor guy can't catch a break...
Del Torchio was at Laguna to present Ducati's final offer of 12m Euros per year for Rossi to stay at Ducati.
With Spies officially leaving the factory Yamaha squad, and Rossi committed to making a decision over the summer break, we should have an answer on Yamaha or Ducati soon.
No one will be watching more closely than Cal Crutchlow, who has publically stated he has an offer to go to Ducati. Now that Nicky Hayden is re-signed, should Rossi elect to stay, Crutchlow will stay with Yamaha (although whether it is a black or blue bike is still a hot topic).
After a strange highside coming into the corkscrew, Rossi hitched a ride back to the pits with team mate Nicky. I guess it's the least he could do after securing a contract extension to stay at Ducati next year!
