 I witnessed JvK's crash in one of the rock gardens. It looked/sounded awful. He was up fairly quick with the comment, "Why always on my head?" He then proceeded to ride the rest of the track, and make at least two more practice runs (including timed practice). Even though I want for him to do well, I'm glad to hear he's doing the right thing and taking it easy.

 People just throwing out gang signs like it's no big deal. Y'all have no idea what kind of danger you just put yourselves in.
