Love the bit about "riding a motocross bike as part of his pre-season preparations". As opposed to "dicking about on a trail bike" I suppose. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Mind you it's less embarrassing than falling through a glass table as an off-season accident. Possibly more painful though!

Get well soon, Jorge.

its quite a mystery to me why some/all riders take lots of risks with 'training' during the offseason. I know, they're on a break, deserve some fun bla bla. but as a rider you have responsibilities, right? iirc they werent allowed to go skiing, but why would they be allowed to do this kind of training? if I were the teammanager (maybe zeelenberg reads this) Id ask my riders not to train with those bikes. how many riders have messed up their season in the past before it even started???? there must be other ways to train themselfs with less risks

Bad luck for Jorge, considering he's not exactly a "quick" learner. Hope he can get over that soon, he can't afford to give his "teammate" much advantage!

yeah crashing is very good preperation [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif[/img] there most be some other things they can do to get that type of practice. like why not do it on simulation-machine things where pillows are on the floor to break their fall if they crash? something like that [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif[/img] professionality.... thats key imo

A lot of fans dont realize how much feedback from riding a dirt bike crosses over into road racing.They can do anything to stay in shape,but fine tuning your "bike senses" is as important as keeping in shape, and nothing keeps your "bikes senses" sharp as riding a dirt bike on the edge.

agreed! very much [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif[/img] but the risk of actually doing it... why not do those things that can simulate reality? nasa trains space- pilots that way too. may cost a few bucks but at least there is no risk of injuries
