Out of pure Evil I am going to spoiler even more and state that Rossi
got round _every_ corner more than once.

Now would be a good time to start selling Speed Tape on eBay.

Yes. Moto3 - excellent, Moto2 - good, MotoGP - also good.

In the BT Sport coverage, there was a slow motion action replay of
Rossi recovering from the front end washing out by lifting the bike
back up on his knee. Absolutely brilliant. Other riders were not so
successful. Sorry for the spoiler as it does mean that Rossi got round
at least one corner.

Mike is searching for it now ;-)

My only issues is the ladder has no lateral stability, it should be end on, not side on, and he should be maintaining 3 points of contact. In addition, he has no kit belt, which suggests only 2 points of contact when ascending the ladder. Shocking, lets get out of the EU now!

The latter. I believe the RAF use it to do semi-structural repairs on
jet fighters, I'm sure it's more than capable of dealing with a
non-structural repair to a passenger plane.

A very specific adhesive that allows it to remain fixed firmly in place
at 700mph.

Harrumph - now we are without in-laws, in between funerals and sorting
paperwork we actually managed to watch pretty much all 15 hours of coverage
the same day it was on,and much of it almost live (save for pausing to put
the kettle on).

As has largely become the norm these days, the excitement decreased as the
day moved from Moto3 towards GP.
