  1. yes , scary how it seemed to bite him out of no where...
    even scarier how he rode the whole race for a 4th with a busted ankle :shock:
    gonna be a tight year in moto gp :grin:
  2. and his injuries, it now appears, are much worse than first diagnosed
  3. What do you know that we don't, Paul?
  4. 2 busted ankles!
  5. You may have read this already, dated Tuesday

  6. Hadn't seen it. If he can race that thing with those injuries, he deserves the Title.
  7. +1

    Tough cookie.

    Rossi rode Assen in '06 with a broken right wrist and ankle, then Valencia '07 with 3 broken fingers. Pedrosa in Malaysia '06 with a big hole in his knee. Bayliss lost half a finger. Someone else in superbikes got a huge chunk of their thigh butchered by a footpeg last year. McCoy with all sorts of rods and pins in his leg. Then he crashed again and the pin came out... Heck, look at Doohan. Needed hand controls!

    This was just a small reality check for Lorenzo. Was a commendable 4th though, for sure.
