German MotoGP: Lorenzo crashes, bends plate in shoulder

World champion Jorge Lorenzo crashed heavily today out of the second free practice session for the German Grand prix at Sachsenring, having set the fastest time of the day in the opening session.

This is crushing news for Jorge

After all the physical work he's done (8 hour physio days anyone?!) to get himself into a half decent state for the Sachsenring too.

Out for two races - bummer. The championship really is Pedro's for the losing now.

2 races!

but of course LS is only next week after all... that is really rubbish for JL, especially after his Assen heroics.

Vale & Cal really need to step up to the challenge now... this is the time that will tell if VR really has found his set up and got his form back and if Cal can take the next step in his career by taking even more points from the Repsol boys.

2 big races for them both now.

Unbelievably bad news for Lorenzo, and seeing him crash in two practice sessions in two races is almost unheard of.
