Video: Carmichael vs. Mac

An explosive ending

The showdown between Ricky Carmichael and Ronnie Mac was just as fiery as most expected, as the battle came down to a takeout on the final lap. With three turns to go, RC ran it up the inside and caused Mac to lose control of his machine. Now, for whatever reason, Carmichael took the early lead and let his rival slip past before the move occurred. What was the thought process behind that? It seems as though we will never know.
