a gentleman remains in control

Big tip of the hat to this guy. I’ve never see a motorcycle accident go down so gracefully (and that’s saying A LOT). Just look at the way he kicks the testosterone into overdrive and manhandles this bike back into control. It’s so stylish and awesome, and he continues as if that moment of nearly going over the bars at body cast speeds never happened.

“Coming around a turn at the Mugello track during a qualifying session, de Rosa got a little too wide and veered off course. He was tossed off his bike, but managed to hang on with his hands and regain control of it. Only problem was his body still remained beside the bike, being carried along in a kneeling position, but with his knees just slightly off the ground. As he skidded along the grass, he eventually got to one knee, took the bike back towards the track, and got back up on it. All of this while the bike remained in motion. It is not surprising to hear that he received a thunderous round of applause when he got back to pit lane.” (From TotalProSports.com)
