Did you see him get off of the bike last week.......I've been, erm critical, of Lorenzo for a long time about a lot of things, but that was about as raw of a display of cajones as I have seen from a racer is a long time.
Agreed. Very Doohanish. But I shudder to think what would have happened even if he had a low speed get off. The heart being so close to the collarbone, if he crashed and the plate/screws/broken collarbone tore the artery, he could have bled out in his leathers before they got him to help. And fast, too, as his heart rate would be elevated from exertion and adrenaline
bikeless. And doing ok with it. For now.
