    My thoughts are with their families and friends.
    I saw some videos on YouTube and it's kind of hard to see exactly what happened. I think someone must have clipped someone and that caused a chain reaction accident.

    I read that one of the riders had a mechanical problem, slowed down and then everything happened too quickly. I guess the losses were a result of riders getting run over (like Tomizawa or Antonelli), or because of hitting the barriers (like Kato). Anyway, it was a terrible day :(

    I think the final frontier of motorsports safety will abut motorcycle racing.
