Mugello MotoGP: Arm pump hinders James Toseland

British rider James Toseland was delighted with his performance in Mugello today, despite being severely restricted by a rare arm pump problem in a hot and humid opening free practice session. The 28-year-old struggled with fast direction changes at the technically challenging Mugello circuit in the early part of the session.  And to compensate for the issue, the extra force he...

Raced 600's for 3 years,most Brit circuits and plenty of offroad since I was 9 and still doing it now so yer I know what arm pump is, I recon if he's got pump hes actually trying this weekend. I hope he does well as I'm actually a fan of Toseland but think he's not been doing the job this season, tough at the top and he knows it,this is what will make or break him

I'm a Toseland fan, but I wish he would stop the excuses and just get on with it....... He's an excellent rider, and its understandable that he's lost confidence considering his 2 big incidents closed season. I hope that he really is friends with the tyres again, and can get the setup he needs for a top end finish this weekend.

Its a bit worrying James being delighted with coming 11th? 4-6th yer but 11th? 6 places behind his teamate as well. I really hope he finds his confidence back asap, dont think hes got many races left this year unless he pulls a couple of mega rides out the bag like a win or at least couple of podiums.

Shame he has another hindrance like this cos he really needs to up his game one way or another otherwise as shamone says he might end up in BSB next year.A lot of people seem to think he will just walk back into WSB but that is not a certainty by any means and even if he does I think he will struggle as the level is higher than when he left.Anyway hope it all gets better for him very soon.
