As Salom’s fall has been reconstructed from data recovered from his bike, slow acceleration off the previous corner caused him to arrive at the long third-gear right-hand Turn 12 about four-mph slower than normal. To enter at his normal corner speed he braked almost 30-ft late for the corner. Ordinarily this would have been okay, but by moving braking closer to T12, he was still hard on the brakes when he came to a bump for which this entry is known. With suspension working freely (brakes having been released) this bump is not a problem, but Salom’s delayed braking meant that his front end was still under heavy side-load, making it act stiffer. Losing grip, the front went away, causing the fall. No one can predict the dynamics of such falls. In general, riders fall and walk away.
