Yeah seems unlikely he'll be back next week as Brivio suggested he might be.
Looks like Cal took a nasty tumble this morning too, and McPhee at the end of Moto3.
Wonder if it's the temperatures or the lack of recent racing but seems to have been a few fast and hard falls over the weekend. ____________________ I am a bellend, I am a man of constant sorrow, I am a gummy bear, I am a rock.
The way if flopped about looked like wrist/forearm to me. Nasty crash anyway.
Seems likely that both Rins and Marquez will miss a few races now. They'd have been my 1st and 2nd prediction for the championship winner this year. ____________________ I am a bellend, I am a man of constant sorrow, I am a gummy bear, I am a rock.
About time for Fabio - hard work and patience pays off.
As for Marquez, that first save was mind boggling and to go from that to hacking your way back through to the top three was the mark of a world champion for me.
That the Honda decided to then spit him off was just the nature of the beast I think. Doesn't take away any of the skill required to get that far and that's why he's won so many races / titles.
On the plus side it opens 2020 right up for everyone to have a fair crack at getting some points before the fallen get back on a bike.
Not sure how many of those kinds of tumble anyone can take before career limiting turns into career ending. ____________________ Module 1 and 2 passed - October 2014. Happy owner of a 2017 Z1000SX, ex owner of a YBR125 / CB500 / VFR800.
“Marc Marquez has suffered an injury it seems from a direct impact of the tyre to the right arm,” said MotoGP traumatology specialist Dr Xavier Mir, “resulting in a fracture to the shaft of the humerus, a complete fracture, although it isn’t completely displaced, with some possible paralysis of the radial nerve, although we’re not certain.
From the moment the front lost traction to him pushing up with knee then elbow, work out he was heading for the gravel..get the bike upright..scrub a bit more speed off then modulate the throttle through the deep gravel trap... and he still nearly got that podium.
Remarkable to think of the champions and winners he passed going back through the pack and with relative ease.
That's not normal thinking for someone to break their upper arm bone last weekend and compete the following week.
Certainly wouldn't happen if he were a foosballer, he'd be out for the rest of the season
It really does my nut in thinking there are whole generations of youngsters growing up idolising footballers, with their cheating/faking/patheticness, thinking that is how you get on in life
They all need to start watching some proper sport, with proper men who get up after a fall and get stright back on that old horse ____________________ Current Bike: Honda CG125 ES4 // Honda CB600FS Hornet // Triumph Street Triple R
I don't see how he can possibly race, this weekend. I'd written him off for the next two races in my head. I'll believe it when I see it!
I suppose one thing to bear in mind is that last week I'm pretty sure everybody who finished scored points? If next weekend is as bad then I guess it's worth being on track just to get something on the board at the end of the race. ____________________ I am a bellend, I am a man of constant sorrow, I am a gummy bear, I am a rock.
"I don’t think the guys in the lead can be proud of winning without Marquez on the track": "If Marc were to miss some races, the championship will not be the same and everyone knows that. For Honda and HRC his healing is the most important thing"
Now confirmed he will sit out tomorrows race. Probably the sensible thing in the circumstances ____________________ Yamaha RD50M, Honda C90, Yamaha RS100, Yamaha RD125LC, Honda XL125 V9 Varadero, Honda NT700VA, Honda VFR800X, Honda CRF1000L
I have to take Yamaha's word that it's only a sensor issue that forced them to ask for special dispensation to return the engines to Japan.
I mean it's not like racing in general doesn't stretch the truth.
Well, that race kept me interested.
Rossi...fair do he did really well (yet I suspect Vinny didn't have the setup or the minerals to do a Rossi on Rossi...i.e punt him out of the way).
