Ok, here is an easy one; broken ankle. (There are multiple answers for this one, so I'll add caveat, raced at his home GP.)

On 'crutch'es?

And used the correct hand too.


There are plenty of comeback stories in GP, you may recall Alex deAngelis fighting for his life, to which I remember at least one member saying, he will never race again at a high level. Thankfully that was the wrong prediction. This next one is for the real old old guys.

Injury: coma

Name that rider.

If Rossi detached his retina, he'd be out there with a seeing eye dog within 2.

Correct. He was hit in the head by a bike. Put him in coma.

Aw Mang, that is not the point of this exercise, but rather the disproportionate grandiose sense of heroism assigned to Rossi when frankly the sport has almost routine examples of riders coming back from extremely limiting and painful injury. I also imagine injuries to the wrist, shoulder, and ankle, particularly soft tissue damage are far more debilitating in regards to the task of motorcycle racing. Then there is this notion that in the absence of an xray, the injury may be faked. Contract the media tone and narrative from previous examples to the frenzied tone now. It's as if everybody else's injuries and comebacks are not noteworthy.

Without looking this up, name the rider:

Injury: multiple fractures of Pedrosa bone .

Hint: went on to podium next race.

Name the rider:

I don't think the seeing eye dog would be necessary. It's a little known fact, Rossi has echolocation capability. Like a bat, or rather, a vampire, sucking the attention from every journalists, program producer, camera man, and pudgy faced men in the paddock.
