Remember when Krops, Hack Oxley, and MotoGP's website wrote exclusive human triumph articles announcing and pondering with great existential examination about Lorenzo's next day return to MotoGP after suffering a broken bone? Prompting one reader to exclaim: "It is beautiful that it isn't numbers or rationality but sheer drive. Fully alive. Trancending immense obstacles and pain. The few so very congruent with greatness are so wonderful! I am inspired." (quote taken from MM comments section)

Remember?

Never has a rider overcome such injury and risked so much to return to racing. I'm sure we will have a lap of honor to applaud never before seen determination.

The funny thing about racing injured is peoples opinion depend on how you do. Finishing is heroic falling is moronic. Relativity at it finest.

Rossi riding with a 3 week healed broken leg is somewhat admirable. I'll never forget Nat Fyfe playing a preliminary final of football with a broken leg. That's fucking tough.

Who cares? A stupid parochial sport, and the second smallest "football" code in the world.

Dub and Jknock, you nailed it. Of course it's praiseworthy that Rossi is returning from a broken leg, but it's not exactly extraordinary in this context. At least not to the level the media attention will find ways to grandirossize it.

I expect a media tone similar to the one we just saw where the entire paddock was forced to comment on Rossi's training activity, this time requiring everybody to comment on their thoughts of returning so soon and how heroic or folly it may be.

Let's play a game:

Name the injury the rider had whilst racing and people try to guess the rider. I'll start:


Injury: broken back

(That seems rather severe right? Can you imagine the implications of re-injuring it?)

If you live in a glass house don't throw rocks.

Still harder to play a game on a broken leg than riding a bike after it's been healing for 3 weeks.

A fucking exciting sport and great fun to play.
