“I’m lost for words. We’ve had such a tough season with an unbelievable amount of bad luck. We have always gone out there to give it 100% and it was the intention of both myself and my team to continue to do so at Phillip Island.


“I took a really hard knock on Sunday and it’s now clear from today’s tests that I have some injuries that require immediate attention.

“It’s disappointing to be heading back to the USA now instead of to Phillip Island but it’s obviously important to get the right treatment as soon as possible.

“I’m sorry for my team and thankful for all the hard work they and Yamaha have put in so far; our current situation is not where we should be”.

After Sepang, I just hope PI is dry. And I'd love to see CS ride there at full strength one last time.

Ben and his team have performed so poorly this year they need to just call it day and try to come back to some sort of form next year.

There isn't enough time for PI, regardless of Mr. Jarvis' inclinations.

Just scored an iPad, and HOPEFULLY, will have worked out how to upload pix by the weekend. But it ain't looking good....

Any help by pm would be appreciated. Been doing it for a zillion years on laptop via photobucket, but This is different. (but obviously with awesome benefits when sorted)
