From MotoGP web site.

Nine-time World Champion has fractures fixed following enduro accident UPDATE 10:35AM CEST:
On Thursday night, Movistar Yamaha MotoGP‘s Valentino Rossi had a successful operation on the displaced fractures of the tibia and fibula of his right leg after an enduro accident the same evening.
Following a medical examination at the ’Ospedale Civile di Urbino', where he was initially diagnosed, the Italian was transported to the 'Azienda Ospedaliero-Universitaria Ospedali Riuniti' in Ancona. Upon arrival, he received surgery between 2am – 3am by Dr. Raffaele Pascarella, Director of the Orthopedics and Traumatology Division. During the surgery the fractures were fixated using a metal pin - a locked intramedullary nail - without any complications.
Further medical updates will follow in due course.
Yamaha have extended their thanks to the entire staff of the 'Ospedale Civile di Urbino' and 'Ospedali Riuniti di Ancona' for their dedication and professional care.
Valentino Rossi: "The surgery went well. This morning, when I woke up, I felt already good. I would like to thank the staff of the Ospedali Riuniti in Ancona, and in particular Doctor Pascarella who operated on me. I'm very sorry for the incident. Now I want to be back on my bike as soon as possible. I will do my best to make it happen!"

Always bad when anyone gets injured, but it'll be nice to not see utchio on for a while.
I bet he will be out for 2 or 3 races anyway and as has been said he hates the long distance ones so maybe the end of the year for him.

Given that Uccio is joint owner of the Sky VR46 team I think that unlikely unless you only watch the main class.

I dislike Rossi but I love see him get beaten on track. Get well soon

BTW, I wonder how do Yamaha feel right now. Maybe they're regretting putting all the eggs on Rossi when Maverick was winning comfortably

Oh wow... If true, season ending.. maybe more. Again, if true.

Not a fan, never want to see him win, but it does really suck when anyone gets hurt. Going to take some fun out of the races he misses.

Well, don't cancel your flights and pawn your tix (like you've done the last 2 years for Laguna) because I predict Rossi will ride at Motegi.

Though im not a doctor (neither in the Rossi sense or MikeM) surgery was one hour, that doesn't seem very long in dog years. The doctor (the real one who performed the surgery) said it would take 30-40 days before 'The Doctor' can compete. Motegi is 40 days away honey.

Your slant on Motegi is interesting. Japan does have a great number of yellow fans

Broke his leg on 5/06/10, raced on 18/07/10 when he broke his leg previously.

That fracture was a potentially more serious compound fracture, although since his leathers confined the fracture the wound was uncontaminated, allowing them to primarily close the wound only a couple of days later as I recall, so it amounted to the same thing as a non-compound fracture as the current one seems to be.

No wish for any rider to be injured, and takes some intrigue from the title battle. Dirt bike riding mid season does seem like an excessive risk, and you don't bounce as well in your late 30s, although he obviously had a similar injury at age 31, that one on a motogp bike on a race week-end.

I have to say if it doesn't make him reflect on continuing it should.

There's little info and I don’t expect much detail to be revealed, but if the surgeon thought he could get back on a bike so quickly, maybe it was a mere mystery fracture.

The kind of fracture that is disputable, debatable, entertained by the sport media as having possible ulterior motives, not the least being perhaps caving into the pressure of being in championship contention. After all, nothing relieves pressure than taking a hiatus from racing mid-season because you can't hack it, as the logic goes.

It's easy for these people to claim that this site is a Rossi haters convention but it never stopped them before and wind back the clock ten years- have the temerity to mention Stoner on here and you'd have more luck flogging bacon butties at a Bar Mitzvah. There is a sport beyond Valentino Rossi - it existed before and it will carry on after...but as I've said before, either in the absence of these one dimensional glory hunting fanatics or alongside the genuine fans of Valentino Rossi that recognise the sport before being hoodwinked a cult of 'personality'.

I agree Gaz. It's a great shame that Dovi won't be able to beat Rossi on the road this year - but the record books alongside those impartial observers nonetheless stand as this season's testimony as to which was the superior rider of the two.

I wish Valentino a rapid recovery and I sincerely hope that this doesn't compromise his competitiveness next year.

Alex Lowes drafted in by Tech 3 while Zarco deputises? More likely a token Japanese National Championship/Yam test rider - y'know, the ones that all look the same.
