I Ride: your mom
I'll never forget when he called into Mugello last time he snapped his twig. I thought I was listing to DORNA in the morning on the radio. Maybe they can barrow the pope mobile and use it as the pacecar so he can wave endlessly to his minions.

There wouldn't be a rider in the go paddock that doesn't train regularly on a dirtbike. Next time you see a slo mo of them backing it into a corner from 300k you might wonder where they hone those skills.

The commentators will be lost for words. What will they talk about now? Expect Vinales to be strong for the next couple of rounds.

Maybe Yamaha will back Vinales in a revolt to return to original tire

Nick Harris will still find a way to mention Rossi as his ever 11th word

I wonder if this will force him to retire?
I'm surprised he carried on enduro training after the pre mugello accident.

No matter how much shit we put on the sport's infatuation with all things Rossi incidents of this nature show his true pull within the world.

I live in the central west region of NSW and we do not get any motogp coverage anywhere with the exception of the race coverage, and even then it is not always the greatest.

This morning, on my local regional radio station, NOT part of the sports news was the report that Valentino Rossi had broken his leg.

Now, while my first thoughts were FFS, seriously ............ truth is at least it and the sport got a mention.




Now, that all said, wish the old guy well and a speedy recovery as no matter what I feel of that aforementioned sports infatuation, no rider deserves to be injured and really, the year will be poorer as now the field will not be at it's strongest possible.

Speedy recovery old man




Now to send a box of tissues to Uccio who will miss being on tv for a race or two < had to have a dig >

One hopes not as for mine, all athletes should go out when they choose in a manner in which they choose, not be forced out due to an injury (aka Doohan, Rainey and many others).

That all said of course, Rossi is not younger and age may well play a part in the healing process both physically and mentally as everything gets tougher as we grow older (was going to say harder but my wife would argue that is not the case )

I understand it in the off season but between rounds? It's just risking too much for me, especially as he's sitting there in the championship 26 points off the top even if it is unlikely he's got the speed to beat the younger fellas over the rest of the season.
