That’s the one I was thinking of. I tried to look up Melandri fracture on the inernet when I first raised it, but couldn’t find it on a quick look, which means to younger folk today that it didn’t happen of course.

I recall being told the rider tire vote in 2012 didn’t occur either, but oddly we now appear to be on alternative time track now where that vote did occur.

(EDIT The Japanese GP injury was a practice accident which I found before, so perhaps not that one. I was actually praising Rossi btw. If I am wrong no rider has suffered a significant injury from an incident involving Rossi, as opposed to one if I am correct, either way a great safety record over a very long career).

Then it must have been 3 podiums, which I guess is about all he's capable of now.

Ah yes. Marc O'Melandri, Ireland's most successful GP racer. I still remember him lighting up the rear of his Honda coming out of the last turn at PI.

Well he certainly stuffed Sete Gibbering who was a so called contender in those days.

I never minded Sete. He did have an astoundingly unlucky season that was epitomized by a car crashing into the ambulance that was taking him to hospital.
Not as bad as Ben Spies' bad factory season though, that was properly unlucky. It was the kind of season where you could be struck by a meteorite whilst on the operating table.

The only thing I didn't like about Sete was his constant whinging, in fact I think he took lessons off Biaggi for that. Nowadays Rossi has taken up the mantle.

I am not going to lie, I felt a bit emotional when Sete won in Welkom after Daijiro passed away.

Carmelo was busy arranging to have someone saw Spies' swingarm in half.
