Hand Job

I think he was hanging around Rossi's pit door looking for some data, Vale came out, slammed the door and trapped the hand - Sounds more like it.

Still get well soon - we do not want a strung out field and it over by mid season.

why do they do it

Going to the gym keeps them fit, but riding  motocross keeps them race fit as it is so physically demanding, Fit and being race fit are two totally different things. thats why they do it.

He should be ok!

These are not the days when you great rider can finish in 2nd with a broken back or get a third place while riding around on a broken collerbone.  Gone are the days when high-siding several times in practice was considered the norm.  Jorge appeared  man enough to ride injured in his rookie season.....he should be OK!

MX bikes are good training tools to keep a rider sharp.....as long as they're not doing something horrificly stupid like double or triple jumps!

Hahaha-Kwackanacki, that sounds more like it-either that or a breeze block fell on it at Sepang, whilst they were constructing "the wall"!!

Not Another?

How many times? Superglue hurt himself this year motocrossing countless others pre season dirt tracking would be better for them and less chance of a break (i think).All the top lads used to go out to Kenny Roberts ranch to learn how to dirt track .

The Bishop

let's face it; he's another Dani Pedrosa. Good, but not good enough. He probably hurt his hand after wtching Rossi complete a lap which he wished he could do. Bashing the bishop is not training for Moto GP.

Keeping one's hand in.

Riders train on dirt bikes for the simple reason that it takes them to the edge of traction (and beyond) at significantly lower and theoretically safer speeds than a road race bike. Racing is all about throttle control. Dirt bikes are the easiest and best way to keep sharp in the off season. Unfortunately it is just as easy to break bones at 30kmph - as happened here, as 200kmph+. Bad jelly the bitch, you have the wit of an amoeba.
