Scary close! (MotoGP Austria SPOILER)

If you didn't see the MotoGP race from Austria last weekend, you missed this.

The look on Rossi's face in the pits during the Red Flag said it all.

Mind blowing that nobody was hit by either one of those two tumbling bikes.

Very lucky that the two riders who came together didn't suffer more severe injuries.

Bullets dodged all around.

Rossi confirmed that Franco's bike went across his nose so fast, he didn't even see it!

Combined with the nasty red flag incident in Moto2 I wonder what the safety commission is making of this. They have to race their again this weekend. Will there be an alternation to the section between T1 and T3 for next year?

I guess the riders have had concerns about parts of the track previous to these two incidents.

I filled MY pants just watching that. I'm guessing Rossi needed a change of boxers after as well. I've never seen anything like that.
