Honestly it's outta control. Every fucking update for MotoGPs Facebook seems to be how he broke his leg 3 weeks ago. Newest one was not many people would get on a street bike let alone a MotoGP bike 3 weeks after blah blah blah. He's a fucking professional athlete for fuck sake, everyone in the fucking paddock would do it. Didn't Lorenzo ride with two broken ankles? I reckon that's gotta be a shitload harder and more painful. Then you have the 'yeah but none of them did it at 38' what kind of fucking excuse is that, like age is a reason why people can't overcome pain. Jesus I watched the man who raised me go through more pain everyday just trying to live a normal life than Rossi is going to experience this fucking weekend.

It's not about hating him for coming back. It's that it's not a superhuman effort, it's that there's precedent for riders and athletes from other sports overcoming far worse but the media acting like this is the second coming of Christ and Rossi has been raised from the dead to bless us all with his mediocre results.
Dr No and Barbedwirebikerr like this.

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.)

Marco Melandri When the custard rider took him out at Twin Ring. I wonder what would have happened if that had been any other rider penalty wise.

Its obvious they've been nasty to Vinales side of the garage, can't stand the fact that the 2nd rider beats the cash cow.

I don't know if you are aware, but their star is riding injured. Maybe thats why.

That reminds me, saw Melandri crash real bad at turn 3 LS in practice. Raced on Sunday.

And this explains why vinales is running in 17th, only 2 tenths Ahead of Yamaha's number 1 rider... how?

You said it yourself, it was damp. Mav never seems to put down fast time in the wet. Also was hearing there are no other signs of rain this weekend, so some viewed today as a throw away.
