Starting up WSBK Race 1 from Navarra.
If you get the stream, check out the slo-mo inspection of lean angle, edge grip and the use of bumps to cause the motorcycle to hop sideways and complete the corner.

Maverick gone for the rest of the season.
Crutchlow will ride his bike in Silverstone and Moto2 rider Jake Nixon will take the Petronas bike of Morbideli at Silverstone.
No word of who will take over the bars after that.
This leaves Maverick to be free to jump on the Aprilia whenever he wants and Aprilia wants him on the bike this year.
Good thing none of the CycleVision League members counted on him.
