Does not look like tech airbags deployed, did they?
I'm pretty sure Moto GP drivers have as many airbags as F1 drivers do...
Pretty sure it did deploy, pradster. The way they have it set up nowadays is not really apparentl. Aside from, you know, looking like you took some steroids and suddenly grew 50 pounds of should muscles :P.Check this video for a quick demo.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_plBbewCxw&feature=player_detailpage#t=83s
Hah, yeah... as Jakob explained, MotoGP riders very much do have airbags.
@ Jacob B : Thanks for the link, it appears that the Alpinestars airbag system is much more subtle than the Dainese system demonstrated last year. @AC : Moto GP riders are one up on the F1 drivers on this one. :)
