    Way more impressive than any other motorbike race I've ever seen.

    I know many will dislike me for my opinion but I'm against this kind of motorsports at all.

    Of course those riders do it by free will, but the high amount of risks doesn't fit in this era of motorsports and is not acceptable for me. Too many get hurt, not only the riders but the wifes, the sons, the daughters, the moms, the dads and so on.

    Everything you do in life is combined with a risk and each person doing motorsports accepts a higher risk in general. But this goes far over the boarder. I don't want to know how many people watch it just to see scary crashes.
