Breaking news: Marquez breaks leg

MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez has suffered a broken fibula in a training crash just weeks before the start of the 2014 season. The 21 year old was flat tracking in in Lleida, west of Barcelona, yesterday afternoon, when he suffered the spiral fracture of the distal third of his right fibula. He was immediately rushed to the renowned Universitario Quirón...

Not contrite enough?

Okay, maybe next time we're on the podium I'll bring a chair up for him then sit on it myself. Oh wait, that's only funny if Rossi does it right?

No? f*ck!ng nob.

When did we start a season

without one of the aliens being injured ?    Kind of underlines my concerns (I was shouted down) about off-season dirt tracking.    If he lost his championship through being unfit at the early rounds - as a manager I would not be happy!      A less risky form of training would be preferable ..... IMHO!!!

It's still because he does dirt tracking for decades that he is so fast, what do you want the managers to do?

Freeze them on ice for 4 month? Anyone of them can get injured during the inter season, in thousand different ways, riding a bicycle or being rolled over by a bus, you name it, it's life and to Marquez dirt tracking is part of his.

I know - that's been said before but it could potentially ruin his season .. and ours.   As a manager I would prefer to see my rider Cycling, running, swimming and in the gym  then start the season fit.    That's just my opinion I know that most don't share it.

Well Marc being Marc

Remember what that did to Mark Webber a few years ago  -  ended up with a broken leg which was pinned and he missed pre-season testing. Nasty things, pedal bikes.

True what you say though, these Motogp boys seem to do themselves more harm on what Wosi calls soft little dirt bikes than they do on their GP bikes... As for training, I'm not sure what real use gym work is. Bike fit is what matters more than anything. One of my mates was always in the gym and physically very fit but it didn't help him much in offroad events and he was always scrap, physically, afterwards, worse than the rest of us who rode our bikes more often and wouldn't know what the inside of a gym looked like. I've also witnessed an enduro world champion have to be dragged out of bed still half pissed in a morning and go on to win the event - and he'd never been in a gym in his life, just always on the bike.

Luckily for MM, this doesn't appear to be too serious and it probably won't hamper him to any extent for the first race.

Less likely on a pedal bike Bulto

and as for gym work - ask the Lowes boys, Bradley Smith and Scott Redding - all have rigorous gym training routines.    Talent of course is the biggest factor and in the case of your gym training mate - although I don't know him he was probably crap on the bike because he didn't have the talent.

I think they ALL practice motocross/dirt-track during the off-season

For obvious reasons & like stated previously, it's also the best way to stay in "motorcycling' shape
