    I think what you are seeing is when he changed positions the air was funneled into his suit through his neck opening, I imagine he only wisshes he could have puffed up like the Michelin man or the Stay puffed marshmallow man

    I was not aware they had air bags until now.

    This video I found on YouTube shows several different types.

    It appears his surgery was successful and he will be returning back to Spain to recover in coming days. Looking forward to seeing him back in top form. He was almost unbeatable before the accident.

    Well, now that you mention it.....

    Any performer who puts himself on the line, after undoubtedly campaigning as a privateer, investing considerable portion of resources, despite guaranteed setbacks, long enough to prove himself worthy a factory sponsorship deserves fans.
    Many are drawn to such types, maybe by identifying with or personal goal.

    At any rate, more deserved than some yahoo swinging a bat.

For either of the riders to try and separate two screaming bikes would be like trying to break up a dog or a cat fight though.
    A kill switch bracelet might be a reasonable solution in the event of a crash. But I don't race so it might not be a good suggestion
