Marquez Must Reduce Risk To Break Rossi's Record

Okay - this is not exactly front page news. But apparently he did damage to the shoulder qualifying in Sepang and has banged it up badly enough during testing in Jerez, that Kropo posted on his site with the headline:

UPDATE: Marc Marquez To Have Surgery On Dislocated Right Shoulder.

Then went on to say Marquez is going to a hospital in Barcelona today to have the shoulder looked at.

I reckon he can manage a 9th even with the bum shoulder. But 10 is a stretch.

Yep, he has to use a different strategy besides pushing till you crash to find limits. It may slow his win total but unless he has complications, no one currently can beat him on a season. His record after returning from surgery is other worldly. In 14 he missed most of testing with a broken leg and wins the first ten races of the year. In 19, following serious shoulder surgery, he has the most dominant season maybe ever. He has 7 BMWs , so dont risk the career to get poles, anywhere top 3-4 will work. He must make changes or he could be done by 30

Particularly since this particular accident was not even exploring track/bike limits but rather playing ducks and drakes with FQ.

Damage was as bad as suspected. Marquez's surgery is completed. Look forward to another season of announcers mentioning it every five minutes to heighten the excitement (or lack of it) during the dull parts of any given race.

Just joking btw but...

Will they say that after or before his X-Rays get stolen?

It's when there was a famous broken Yellow femur or tibia or something like that 2 years ago and the commentators just kept yapping about how heroic the guy was.

When asked about the X-rays they were "stolen" so he couldn't prove the broken bone.

There wasn’t much in the way of doubt about the compound tibial fracture he sustained in 2009 which didn’t require an X-ray to diagnose, and while I am obviously not a fan of him because of his off-track machinations, the hate campaigns against his rivals he orchestrates in particular, he did come back from that injury fairly ridiculously early in terms of what would be expected for a common man, and was sufficiently unperturbed by it to win a race.(EDIT 2010 I meant obviously, he won the title in 2009)

Not sure if I ever heard about that. Would be on a par with bullshit from Trump if it were just a publicity stunt. Even without an x-ray, given how much everything these guys do is so heavily documented, one would expect someone would have taken a picture of the injured leg with a cellphone. Where's Zapruder when you need him?
