500 cc race report

Doug Chandler crashes in qualifying and briefly loses consciousness, which automatically DQd him from the race.

Mick Doohan’s 3rd pole in a row. Doohan takes the start from Wayne Rainey and Kevin Schwantz.

Down the straight, Rainey is extending his leg as if he has a problem.

The lead is a 2-man battle, and Doohan almost highsides on the turn leading to the straight and lets Schwantz through for the lead. They swap the front many times, but Schwantz develops a tire problem and nurses it home to 2nd. In the battle with Schwantz, Doohan demonstrates that any lingering weakness from Assen '92 isn't enough to prevent him from riding at the highest level.
