Turkish 250 Race **SPOILER**
Have any of you ever seen a race with more passes in the lead group? I've been watching GP for 16 years and I can't remember one. Most of them were pretty clean, but Barbera's move on DeAngelis was bush league. Cool to see KTM win so soon, Aoyama played it smart and didn't get caught up on all that passing, he just stalked the front 5 until a few laps to go. Very intelligent move on his part.
After Barbera punted DeAngelis off the track you could tell he was riding pissed off. He made it back up there only to have what could only be described as a near death experience. I'm 100% serious when I say that I thought he was going to die. Track designers don't account for freakish things like that and I thought he was going to get pancaked between his bike and the armco. As fate would have it, instead it was one of the greatest saves in racing history. DePuniet's save last year in England is at the top of my list, but this was a close second.
If you normally don't watch the 250 race, watch this one... even though you know the outcome it's still worth it. Either way, don't miss the onboard of DeAngelis' save... epic.
