Up until now, it has not been īnormalī to have an operation, wake up, jump on a plane, and fly back to the circuit, and race. He just got lucky, and it worked for him. Doesnīt mean itīll work every time.

+1.
J-Lo's tough. He rides with a broken foot. He rides with a broken collarbone. I rekn he'd even ride if his pet budgie got it that morning. I'm impressed.

Oh yeah, Pilbara, you don't count either. You do have a bit of a reputation for being made from good Oz steel tempered by hard red dirt.

I called my wife to come and pick me up, she was not going to cooperate so I rode home, strapped myself up and was back at work in an hour machining a 300kg turbine shaft bearing cap, fitting a Bentley Nevada probe.

I ordered a really fancy clavicle brace on line, it came in a few days and I wore that for a few weeks.

I did not see a doctor or visit a hospital. I knew what I had done, I knew how to treat it and it only took a few hours out of my life. I managed to compensate for the lack of movement by improvising.

I actually thought nothing of it.

I really think we take some of this shit far to seriously, Jlo was a bad break but he had the advantage of having some really need shit available to get him bolted back together. He knew what he could do and just got on with work.

It's tough its good, but really at his level and line of work it is probably pretty well, normal! Albeit amazing!

If I had gone to a doctor I would probably have been given a medical cert to be of work for weeks. I didn't and I wasn't well a couple of hours, not weeks.

Jlo did what he knew he could do, why do people question it and or call it stupid. He doesn't call you stupid for driving a car down the highway.

Just let the guy get on with his job and be amazed, you really have no right to judge him at all from a lot of counts.

Cheers

Yep, and no one is crying bloody murder that Marquez rode with a broken hand and a broken foot. Why no concern there? Certainly he needs both of those to control the motorcycle...

I think it was simply a matter of time; JLo had enough time to get himself ready to race. I don't think Colin had as much time and that affected the doctor's decision to let him race.

This all kind of reminds me of when Rossi broke his leg. Because it was Rossi, the reaction was like he had died. But it was just a broken leg. A nasty break, no doubt, but no worse than what Randy DePuniet suffered a few rounds later. No one gave two f*cks about RdP.

You might as well get paid well for having no chance of winning, and there's always the hope he might be the next Stoner.

More fuel for the shoulder fire

@motomatters: According to @MOTOCI_Maroto the plate in Lorenzo's collarbone is bent. Needs to have more surgery. Probably out till at least Laguna Seca

MotoGP.com announcers heard rumors about CC going to a Honda next year........ I am sure Gresini is tired of the crap finishes AB delivers and that would be about as close to a factory bike as CC could hope to get without going to Ducati.

Redding to the 2nd Gresini customer prototype...

That sounds good, hope it is true!

Hate to see CC ruin his career.

Yeah. Much as I was hoping to see Ducati improve after the Audi takeover, it's looking unlikely any time soon.

I agree Bautista is under-performing.

“I have decided to go home and recover after today's crash at Sachsenring,” said Lorenzo.

“I prefer to focus on surgery to fix the plate that was unfortunately bent during the crash. I will try to recover and be back as soon as possible."
