Rider scraped a peg, back end got swirly, he panicked, sat up on the bike, looked at the dirt, hit the front brakes, down he went. He could have made the turn. He had plenty of road, all he had to do was change his body position, scrub a little speed and go thru the turn.

I always like watching these videos. You get to see a lot of good riding and a lot of really bad riding.

Exactly what I was thinking, he could have saved the bike by looking and leaning though the turn. Everytime I watch the video I scream, "What are you DOING !?! Don't let up, keep going (though the turn)".

He dumped that R1 really good.

It happened to me also, the difference is I was just riding slow, I have plenty of time to correct my mistake then I let go of the front brake, lean again, and went on through the turn. It's a good thing for me that Im still slow in cornering.:)

I don't feel he was a 'noob' (newb, newbie, nub, etc.) at all. Those are tough roads, he got a knee down and looked like he knew how to corner well. Anyone can make a mistake while panicking, especially on challenging roads!

Not saying he is a great rider- just that I don't think he is necessarily a BAD one either

Maybe noob was a bit harsh way to describe it, was a hard week with exams Haha, from what I can see with the videos is all the same type of rider errors seem to crop up.
I'm glad exams are over now so I can finally chill out!

When you panic, you waste precious seconds that you could be using to avoid a crash.
