Giuseppe "Pino" Todero, the guy who crashed the other Guzzi V8, is a mate of mine. When I sympathised with him and said that must have been embarrassing he said, a bit sharply, "Why embarrassing? I have done it, you haven't" I hope he didn't think I was criticising him.
He went on to say that he was trying to pass another rider before the corner and simply came in too "hot" and couldn't brake enough.
A classic case of the "red mist" coming down. Can happen to us all.
