1 more second of air and this story would have a different ending.
Probably not. He's not aimed to run off the side of the track, and as long as he doesn't land on the tailpiece he's good to go. Generally, too much airtime only matters if you overrun an approaching corner after touching down, or another rider crests slower, then accelerates past you while you are coasting in air. Landing on another bike you are lapping is also possible.
Looks like the top of the "Mountain" at Cadwell Park, Lincolnshire, UK.I'm racing there next month - a lovely track.
Look where you’re going.Go where you’re looking.
The power to weight ratio is nothing short of intoxicating with super bikes or even sport bikes these days.

You may be cool sailing your MX bike over a jump, but you're not jumping-your-crotchrocket cool...............
Tracks that have real altitude changes make for fun and challenging racing. Many years ago, Kenny Roberts Sr stated that if you could handle racing at Sears Point Raceway, you could race anywhere. That was his home track. The three tracks in CA that I raced at, Sears Point, Laguna Seca, and Willow Springs, all had elevation changes that added to the challenge.
