^^ Yep. I'm far from being any sort of expert on this, but AFAIK big bones don't heal in a week. Only thing healed up by Sachsenring practice might have been the incisions they made for inserting the plate and the bruising from screwing it on.

When they shipped him back after the Sachsenring incident, I suppose the stitches were still in from the earlier plate. Does anybody know whether they'd just re-open the former incisions? Or would they try and avoid the scar tissue and go in somewhere else?

Another question that occurs is whether they re-use the original bolt holes when they put the new plate in, or whether they try and fill those and find fresh bone for the fresh screws. Anybody? Obviously they had to place three extra screws, so perhaps it's a used and new combination.

Of course not. That he was able to function at all was due solely to the plate. Most people don't get a plate, they just wait several weeks for it to heal. At least that's what I did with my two breaks . . .

I've had 2 ACL's on the same knee and they use different screw locations saying the old hole is compromosed but a collarbone doesn't have as many options.

Whatever benefits Dorna thought a single tire supplier would bring to MotoGP, needs to be compared to real and comprehensive data.

Bridgestone has provided tires for these tracks and weather conditions for years. They should know what they are doing by now. Are they trying to save money by minimizing the number of tire variations and making compromises?
Because before the single tire supplier, nobody ever crashed ...

Spec tires save private teams 50,000 euros a year or more in parts. Factories never paid for tires anyway, and got the good stuff, while private teams got whatever Michelin or Bridgestone had left on the truck, and paid through the nose for the privilege.

Why are people crashing? Because as motorcycle racers, it is their proclivity to push as close to the limit as possible. Sometimes they find it.

Ducati?

I guess this is what happens when everything a company tries is a failure. Ducati sucks everywhere they try to race these days. They changed a lot of people to try and get something right. But everything they do seems to go wrong.

Nick will be OK. His best might be yet to come.

Where is Jinx?

Hmmmm.. Did Marquez also use this horrible Bridgestone POS rubber, and how did he do last weekend? I assume, that as a rookie rider, he must've been hospitalised first thing on Friday morning..

Hoping this turns out to be a good thing for Nicky. Would love to see him go back to Honda on Sat bike with factory support. If not, WSBK here we come! Hopefully not on the Ducati though, they haven't gotten anything right in awhile now. Ung.

Shitty thing for Nicky, but maybe a good thing to get him out of the golden handshake.

If Cal goes to Ducati then we can go back a few pages to the argument about riders' doing it for wins or $$.
He goes to Ducati he'll go down as an almost-ran. Hopefully invests his money well.

Not gonna happen. Honda have too many good options to choose from, and will spring for a young talent over an old talent. Redding is 20, Crutchlow is 27, Hayden is 32.

The link posted the other day had Nicky saying he was fine with going to SBK and would be good to have him there to add more talent to the series.
