Luca crashed lap 2.

Matt crashed lap 8.

Surely dissappointing for ALL.

Hopefully, the guys will give us an update. There was a nice article in Sport Rider mag this month on the FBF race team.

Ya, Luca did not look so good getting up after the crash. I hope he is ok! I didnt see Matt's crash on TV so I dont know what happened to him. I hope he is ok too! Definitely a bummer of a day for FBF MV team

I watched the european Superstock, Badovini lead for most of the 12 laps, unfortunately he also binned it whilst trying to retake the lead on lap 12

Matt crashed on lap 15.
He is ok, and will be home later tonight.
I am sure he will be along to tell you guys what happened.

Matt came into Rainey corner and had to stand it up and went through the gravel trap. He rode it for a while through the gravel and it finally fell over on him, it looked like a easy fall and he looked ok but dejected sitting on the wall watching the other racers go by. It happened right in front of us and we got some great shots of Matt dueling it out with #10 who I think is Doug Chandler.

On another note I wanted to share my experience with Matt, Luca, Eraldo and the entire FBF team. I trailered my F4 down from WA with four guys I ride with. We arrived on wednesday night and planned on riding all day thursday and spending the majority of friday, saturday and sunday at the track. After riding around Big Sur on thursday my bike just died and wouldn't re-start. We spent the majority of thursday trying to figure it out to no avail. While at the track on friday we stopped by the FBF paddock and I started talking to Matt and my bikes current state came up. What he did was a complete class act. He told me to come back a little later that day and he would bring me over and introduce me to his mechanic and see if we could get it figured out so I could ride the rest of the weekend.
I didn't take him up on his very generous offer because I knew that they were working long hours trying to get the bikes ready for qualifying. Matt's offer in of itself just amazed me though, we are lucky to be able to cheer for such a great group of people.
Even though I wasn't able to ride my bike I still had a great time and have photo's and autographs with the whole FBF team.

Thanks again and you have a fan for life.
