Any bets on weather Stephan Bradl will beat Alex Marquez this weekend?

Marquez went under the knife again yesterday to replace the titanium plate that bent due to overstress. He will spend 48 hours in hospital.

Seems the frantic eagerness to get back on track backlashed on the alien  ;)

From what I read he did nothing wrong to contribute to it, my thoughts are they put in hardware that was 'lighter' than should have been to minimize the intrusiveness of the original procedure to allow a quicker recovery but that's just me reading between the lines and thumb-sucking a theory.

Nah, you're right, It's simple mechanics. The bone is broken and cannot be used for support, so they fit a plate. Technically, you can use your arm as normal as the plate is now your support. However, a crappy installation, wrong plate, whatever, will compromise this and any wrong move, even wiping your arse, will make things move or break. Back to square 1.

P.S. The wipe your arse thing was a joke, that's his mommy's job .......................  :biggrin:

Forget the arse wipe - he did it all by himself. Over inflated ego and 28 laps of MotoGP sorted it out. He should know about collateral damage by now. 👺

Jip, Massive ego and hard reality perished the guy.......as most foresaw  ;) There is no medicine for sheer stupidity  ::)

Stupidity, recklessness ....................... whatever you wanna call it. This boy is a racer, exactly what we want.

He's got balls, which makes him a man. His face needs a punch or two but his attitude is top notch.
Don't let fear hold you back ..... take it with you!

MM definitely out for Brno this coming weekend, but most probably also for the first, maybe even the 2nd GP on the Red Bull Ring as we enter a period of three races in three weeks.

So if Fabio wins on Sunday it will be the first time in 40 years that a Yamaha wins the 1st three races of a GP season - not since my old hero Kenny Roberts in 1980!

Yes Fabio's was a real simple tumble - dusted himself off, ran off and laughed it off.  :imaposer:  A really likeable lad - guess he was lucky looking at all the broken bones doing the rounds  ::)  I think we are in for a stonking race tomorrow - challenging track conditions and times so close.  :ricky: :ricky: :ricky:

He must just start by collecting some points!  :3some:
