If the race was close and they race to the finish line, they would be going twice as fast.

Another video with a different camera perspective of the finish line/wheelie/podium ramp crash:

He wheelied across the finish line, brought it down before the ramp and THEN slid out on the wet steel ramp.  I don't see a reason for the penalty. He could have done the  exact same  thing without the wheelie.  Race was over.  Just my opinion

Agree 100%

He brought it down before the ramp and it looked like he was on the brakes.  As soon as he hit the slippery ramp his wheels went out from under him like he was on ice.  Not sure how that is his fault.  Itís not like he ghost rode his bike up the ramp and jetisoned it into the crowd.  He made a mistake and crashed.  Not sure how you go from a rider having an accident where a spectator gets hurt to taking the win away from the rider.  Way to extreme IMO
