Was Ulrich waving away his team car...(7 posts)

Or the motorcycles? After he crashed he waved at the vehicles behind him several times as if they were too close. Phil and Paul felt it was the team car.

But at that point the team car started to cut off the camera motorcycle and kept doing so. They were practically dualing to be right behind Ulrich. So to me it seemed that he didn't want the cycle right behind him and the team car was trying to protect him.

Did Ulrich make any post race comments regarding this?

I think they were trying to push his pace, which I think is not legal. After his fall he was probably afraid of being hit by it if he had another crash. It only looked to be a coupled of car lengths behind him.
he seemed kind of pissed (& distracted by it though) (nm)wolfereeno

He didn't want to get squished if he wrecked again! nmKG 361
