You are as good as the last race , if it takes 8 people to fall out of a GP in order for VR to get a podium again then I suppose the record book will show the master found his pace again.. not.


These 8 who fell off, they were all ahead of VR46 when they fell off? 
 

ahh its all tongue and cheek, it was just to get Rossi fanboys in a knot. That race was really tough and for anyone his age to finish was an achievement in fitness and stamina.  :peepwall:

I'm just happy to see MotoGP again, my Sunday afternoons have not been the same without it, with MM not racing I was all over how Francesco Bagnaia was riding.and its just a treat to watch the SA flag fly in GP so my family are all big BB fans.

I checked you out a long time ago, you are a troublemaker.
Now, back to the point.
At a certain age you start to benefit from a early Sondag middag slapie, seems to work well for the doctor... :peepwall:

Literally everyone has an opinion on a team or a rider, the rivalry between teams and the competitiveness between them lends to this phenomenon.. some call it banter, some call it troublemaking, I suppose in order to keep the peace and not have any of that we should all wear shirts with every brand on them so everyone feels included and accepted.

Anyway, I was keeping things on subject with my comment about FB, so not sure what the fuss is..

That break doesn't make sense - why didn't they fit a nail in the centre? Way more stable than a one-sided plate with a gazillion holes drilled into the bone. Maybe a 2-sided plate would also work - I dunno, I'm only an electrician, but I have my ortho on speed-dial.

The muscle/flesh invasion to get all those screws in must be hurting big time, never mind the bone. Imagine getting stabbed by a knitting needle twenty times through your arm and you go racing a week later. Fuck!!!!

He's not Barry Sheene.....................................................  he should stay at home and take his vitamins and kale.
Don't let fear hold you back ..... take it with you!

I suspect the is not legit. The bone in the xray has multiple clean breaks. The other pic (MRI?) shows a singular twist-like break.

Fair enough but in GP banter we play the ball not the player.

By the way, those MM supporters may have noticed a very radically different helmet he was wearing in the 1st race. I checked it out and it is a helmet he was wearing which will be auctioned off to raise funds to support CV-19 relief.
It's fantastic to see riders always giving back, I'm sure there are other riders out there doing similar things. If you have any riders you support who have these initiatives feel free to share them.
