Haga injury update: Title hopes still alive

There is a slim hope that WSB title leader Noriyuki Haga could be back racing injured at the next round of the series after undergoing surgery today on a badly broken arm sustained in a massive crash at Donington Park yesterday.  And even if he misses that round, a six week break to recuperate before the following race means his championship hopes remain very much alive. He currently leads Yamaha's...

I am nice

SV659NUT,  I did not mean to dis Ben Spies I believe him to be very talented and a good bet for 2010. I really want to see Nori win this year, he is always the bridesmaid and never the bride.

I am not sure Spies would want to go to GP yet, possibly 2011 ( what about a three way battle between Rossi,Lorenzo and Spies) I would buy a ticket for that eh!   Liz from Lanzarote.

I'm sure you are Liz

And I totally agree about Spies waiting until 2011 to to to MotoGP - but if he gets a good ride I'm sure he will go next year. If he does, I hope he has his bike sorted by the time he races here in Indianapolis!

Get well quick and GO FAST NORI !

injury timeout

Seems that there are a number of rider's who while seriously injured will risk it all to come back to score points. I think Haga is a hero but I worry about the consequences of having an equally big crash while seriously injured and when you look at it it's just riding round in circles as much as I love it.  A badly broken arm will never hold a handle bar as well as a healed one no matter how much metal and pain killers you throw at it. We are getting to the point where these bikes are at the limit of abilities of a super fit man with no injuries can cope with.

Haga injuries

Haga is in a tough spot. He needs to ride his absolute best but with the new and old injuries it will be hard for him. After having a comfortable 60+ point lead, now he will have to push hard to stay on top. Spies, with the addition of his new/old chief mechanic from AMA that came to work for him in WSB last week, there won't be any more mechanical DNFs that have cost Spies 3 races. The Ducati boys can only hope he crashes.

Go Ben

Spies has his mechanic I think Haga is in for it. he always seems to do this to him self, I hope he can heal in time to fight but i am not sure 6 weeks will not be enough he has some serious injures from before and now these bikes are bulls on 2 wheels and Spies is very hungry to me he has been the best new thing for the past 4 years now, and he is just getting better if he had not has the dnf's he would be leading this tittle chase by a long shot so stay tuned people Big Ben will take it all and what a joy it will be to watch. I hope Haga can get him self feeling good love him but i cant wait to see ben kicking every ones ass in a few weeks agin..
