Jorge Lorenzo made a mistake… and some good memes

Whether you keep up to date with MotoGP or not, you’ve probably heard about or seen the incident from lap two at last weekend’s race in Catalunya.

Jorge Lorenzo, who has been struggling to get to grips with the Honda all season got off to a great start, and got a little too excited heading into the tricky turn 10 on lap two. He lost the front, taking out Andrea Dovizioso, Maverick Viñales and Valentino Rossi in the process.  All four riders had to retire from the race, giving Marc Marquez an easy jaunt to the finish line. And then the memes started.

Alternatively, if you want a serious and insightful reaction, one of the best MotoGP writers around, Mat Oxley has published a great article on Motorsport about the incident, and why it wasn’t the biggest crime committed during the weekend. That honour went to Maverick Viñales during qualifying.
