' “This has been the worst and saddest thing I ever seen in a bike race,” Giovanni Castiglioni said in an Instagram post.' The Guardian

Well, this trick might not be the worst and saddest thing ever seen in a motorcycle race, but it is a time-honored and despicable thing to do. It's too bad that Fenati, who showed such promise earlier in his career, has t resort to this kind of shenanigans. Some, including Castiglioni (above), would like him banned from racing, but maybe a one- or two- year suspension might be more appropriate, assuming any team will touch him after that period.

I agree with that Juan, a friend sent me the link to the video and I had to look it up on my own, I couldn't believe a rider would do that, sure playing around with friends is one thing but, that was bull$hit, a couple year suspension seems appropriate.

and there's this

Pretty shitty thing to do. Makes you wonder how many times he got away with it before the TV camera's were present...

Sorry to disagree juan, but I concur with Crutchlow..ban him for life. He can see how difficult it is to earn that kind of money in the real world. Of course, when he discovers how little sympathy there is for "fly off the handle" people, he'll reap what he sows in a jail cell. With the kicking incident, he's had more chances than I would've given him. Inexcusable. Buh-bye buddy.

He's also a kill-switch-flipper. That shit's funny when you're in the pits with buddies at a track day, not in a world championship. I agree, ban him for life. He is a child and children don't belong in grands prix.

Was it a form of road rage: screw with the other person without considering consequences?

You can see how the other rider’s bike was unsettled. If it were a bit more violent, he could have lost control. This could have been homocide. The penalty should be severe. Get him away from other riders.

Id bash his teeth out with my helmet in the pits.you can see him reach around the guard thats there to prevent accidental lever smashes...rong just rong

He has retired anyway, but not after blaming the other guy:

Glad he got his ass sacked over this. There should be no tolerance for such malicious acts.

Everyone, everywhere, is all jacked up.

i mean - the freaking psychic energy (mental/emotional, not ESP, though, maybe that too) is off the charts.

And here I was thinkin the Euro's had cornered the market on "sportsmanship". Until the biting episode's during the World Cup...and now this. What the hell? It's racing man. It's not UFC, or worse, women's UFC, or whatever the hell they call that vile crap these days. That dude has a wanna be 'Merican inferiority complex. He must be a Trump guy...
