So what exactly does a knee-slider and knee cup look like after holding up the front end of a MotoGP for a punishing race in Texas?

It looks exactly like this.


This is the picture Scott Redding posted of his melted slider and body armour along with this words: “Lost the front a few times in the race , the front tyre was destroyed as was my knee slider !!!!”

Redding eventually finished the race  in 12th place on the Ducati.
