Mugello MotoGP: Valentino Rossi breaks right leg in massive crash

Valentino Rossi’s 2010 MotoGP world title hopes disappeared today when he suffered a broken right leg in a huge high-side crash during final practice for his home race at the Mugello circuit in Italy this morning. The reigning world champion was viciously thrown from his factory Yamaha YZR-M1 machine at the fast entry to the Biondetti chicane shortly before the approach...

Vals broken leg

Didn't Barry Sheene have only two weeks off when he broke his leg doing 170 mph ?

Lorenzo will run away with the championship.

Nicky Hayden will be the next most consistant rider, finishing on the podium every race while the others crash and fall over each other.

Valentino will make a quick recovery, come back and battle with Nicky for 2nd and 3rd place in the championship. 

Roll on 2011.

write him off !!!

slight missunderstanding .    as you quite rightly say anyone would be utterly stupid and ,lets face it, brain dead to ever right off valantino .. im just pointing out what could be a distinct possibility ,based on how vale may see things . . the object of moto gp over many seasons now { orchestrated as we all no by honda and vales unhappy departure ] has been to dilute rossis obvious dominance of the sport by way of introducing rule /machinery changes to irradicate his main advantages. and under the guize of cost savings and safety  , produce a machine he can be beaten on [over a season]  to his great credit hes adapted like the genius he is but hes had to race motorcycles under very different circumstances .and each year adapt to motorcycles developed to reduce single rider ability .for eg.... tc now does the job for every rider, of managing power delivery against tyre ware/grip. one of the main rider skills he had clear dominance with over race distance... this is a fundermental issue when you talk about riderskills and indeed the reasons most past champions became champions. doohan rainey etc         it  could finally quosh vales desire to continue towards a goal he can no longer achieve[agos record]         on todays machines people like biaggi and cadalora etc would have prevailed . . as good as they and lorenzo are , we havnt seen valentino fight on a clean slate for years .  its this factor which may finally make him go to 4 wheels.

If you think the season's over ...

... think about last year when Stoner was smashing everyone early on and looked like romping away with the title. Look how that all ended up.

The Hondas are fast and getting better sorted. Stoner might yet get his shit together. Yes Lorenzo has a big advantage but so did Stoner last year.

The bikes are all twitchier this year, as evidenced by Rossi the king of smooth binning it. Who'll be out of the seat and into a hospital bed next? Anything could happen.

It's a very bad break

A displaced compound fracture of the tib and fib is a very nasty injury and there is also the danger of infection as the bones broke through the skin.I'm sure that if the op goes well and he doesn't get any infections Rossi will return when he's ready and will still be the man to beat.He's not a rider that crashes very often and has been fortunate over the years to have gotten away without really badly injuring himself which makes this injury all the more worse so late into his career.Having never missed a race for 14 years or so at the highest level speaks for itself.

Anonymoussays,Sheene returned to racing 6 or 7 weeks after his Daytona crash in 1975 at cadwell but wasn't allowed to start his first Grand Prix after that crash the week after Cadwell.The Silverstone crash in 82 happened towards the end of the season so in effect he only missed 3 GPs in all but didn't race again for 7 months in total which was still an amazing recovery.He first rode a GP bike during a short test at Donington in Feb 1983 but only did about 5 laps because it then started snowing !! His badly broken legs didn't slow Sheene down but that piece of shite Suzuki did,shame he didn't stick with Yamaha for 83,could have been a different finish to his career if he had.

I am gutted for Vale, the greatest rider I have seen.

I hope he comes back, I think he will but he hasn't got anything to prove.

It could be the start of a new era, with Stoner as good as going to Honda. Yamaha can't afford to loose Lorenzo, and with Rossi's season over. Maybe he might think it's time to move, where better than Ducati. He would be worshiped and not have a Lorenzo to worry about.
