Some remarks about Cal Crutchlow who will test Yamaha's ability to crash.

Crashes by MotoGP rider 2014 - 2020:

Cal Crutchlow:  106 average 15,14 per annum - crash test dummy who crashes all the time.
Johann Zarco:  53 (since 2017) average 13,25 per annum - stinking dumb Frenchie who crashes all the time.
Jack Miller: 107 (since 2015) average 17,83 per annum - poephol Aussie who falls all the time.
Marc Marquez: 105 (2020 2 crashes not included) 17,50 per annum - brilliant and talented rider testing the limits

Where did you get this info from.. I don't pretend to count crashes but I would have assumed Crutch was WAY above anyone else.. although Binder seems to be trying to break records.

Assumption is the mother of all incorrect crash stats.   :biggrin: ;)

So, seems MM93 has had a third operation. New plate and bone graft.

Indeed.  Spanish media speculated that this was coming for some time now.  We can only hope that he will heal properly, or his career is over which will be terrible news.

He must be so pissed at himself for trying to come back so soon after the original injury. At the time I thought it was insanity and could not believe it.

He thought he was made of the tough stuff like Rossi and the old guard that came from the 500 class  :biggrin: :biggrin:

Sjoe it will really be sad if his career ends this way. He was always more at risk, and as much as I don't really like him it's a pleasure watching someone ride a bike the way he does. Let's hope he's back soon.

For sure.  I am no MM93 fan and frequently expressed concern about his, almost " willy-nilly" approach to crashing.  This does not mean I ever want to see any rider end his career due to a crash.  MotoGP will be poorer for it, if it happens, so I can only hope he heals well and properly before testing for the next season starts.

I still feel the medical team who gave the go ahead for him to race after his first op should all be keel-hauled, whipped, flogged, stabbed, shot and then forced to listen to Justin Bieber songs for 48 hours non-stop.

That would be the MotoGP controlling body's medical board?
