Yamaha’s Valentino Rossi

For the first time of 2015 MotoGP, Valentino Rossi suffered a crash aboard his Movistar Yamaha YZR-M1. The crash occurred during the second free practice – and it wasn’t the nine-time World Champion’s fault.

Dani Pedrosa was ahead of Rossi, and the Repsol Honda rider’s RC213V leaked fork oil onto the tarmac. This caused some slick spots on the 3.36-mile containing 14 corners, and both riders crashed at turn 13 with 38 minutes remaining.

Fortunately, Rossi walked away unhurt, and was able to rejoin FP2 10 minutes later. He eventually finished Brno otoGP FP2 in fourth place. As for Pedrosa, he sustained a hard blow to his left ankle, and was ruled out of practice, though he returned to the track Saturday morning where he finished 10th in FP3. As for Rossi, he quickly got up to speed in FP3, finishing second – 0.555 of a second behind teammate Jorge Lorenzo.

Following the Brno Crash, Valentino Rossi says “Unfortunately Pedrosa had a problem with his bike and it lost some oil and I crashed. This afternoon was difficult for everybody because the track is very slippery and the amount of grip is very low and at the same time there are a lot of bumps, so every time I entered the corner I was pretty much at the limit. At the end of the afternoon it went a bit better and I went into fourth position, but I have to recover a disadvantage, especially the one to Jorge, who seems to have the best pace.”
