MM should have gotten a text saying to cool down, he had a few laps to plan for MV.

Now Honda gets to learn about the all your eggs in one basket truism.

I don't buy this whole shit of "he can end his career, paralysis", bla bla, hell, it's just an humerus breaking, nothing special. Who the hell have never had a broken arm bone before on incredible conditions? It's always that awkward feeling "how was it possible ??? I'll never get 100% healed, I'm lost, buaaaa" ...Tuesday surgeon will implant a plate and some screws and sooner than expected the kid will be just racing around as always. I remember both Rossi and Lorenzo racing with a broken leg in less than a month time span, it's not a big deal for these guys. I don't even doubt that he will be almost fully fit up until 1 month, you know, these high level athletes gets on steroids and HR therapies all the time to recover a lot faster.

But the title race is gone, that is for sure. Bad for Marc, good for the show either. It was about time a shit like this would be happening to him, today he has ridden like a mad on cocaine. Remind me Ayrton Senna on his glory days.

He's fast as hell, but sometimes Marc is dumb as hell too. After almost throwing away his race, making such a comeback, the last thing he needed was forcing over the limit on a battered Vinales with 5 laps remaining. Even a 3rd or a 4th place would be such an important result, and next week he could race for the win.

Whatever..as Stoner once said, ambition sometimes outweigh talent.

I hope he recovers fully, competing again at this stage is secondary. The doctors seem extremely concerned in the post race interview they gave. A "strange and wierd fracture".
He got hit by the bike. Anything can happen then.

He has also finally got bitten bad by that vicious flawed bike. He has been riding around the problems for years, and has quite possibly progressively turned off the electrickery which makes highsides rare these days. As has been said, that looked like a highside from the 80s/early 90s 500 days.

It was about time a shit like this would be happening to him
Your views are quite frankly disgusting, to wish such misfortune upon a rider like that. You are certainly no fan of this sport, or its riders for that matter.

Holy fuck... who the hell is "wishing misfortune" here? I think that it was supposed to be me having problems with text interpretation here.

You're looking like an eager purple hair gay feminist searching internet for other people's opinions to distort and problematize it.

So you wanna a political rival to play to? It's not me, no way. Go treat yourself dude, you're not well.

You can buy it or not as you like, but the radial nerve can of course be damaged by trauma and runs next to the humerus for part of its course.

Hopefully it is just a neuropraxia/the nerve has taken something of a battering and will recover. Otherwise sure a humeral fracture will heal and might be better than having done further damage to his shoulder, articular cartilage in particular doesn’t heal.

Thankyou for the benefit of your medical knowledge. Much appreciated

Wow, just wow. Quartararo pops his cherry. Well done lad, shame about marque injury, but he was tempting fate so many times last night, riding like a man possessed. He truly is the class of this era. Hope the injury will allow him to return. Will be difficult, but you can't say the championship is over for him yet. Aside, who are the protagonists? FQ, MV, AD maybe even JM? What happened to Rossi's bike? Didn't hear any mention....

That was a wild start to the 2020 season. As it has been mentioned here many times before, the only thing that's going to slow down Marquez is Marquez. I really wanted him to cool down after he somehow made it back into a podium position however like a red flag to a bull I don't think Marquez is capable of anything other than 101% commitment all the time. Here's hoping he has a speedy recovery.

Congrats to Fabio. Even without anyone on his heels those final laps must have had his brain in overdrive considering how close he has come in the past. Shame he didn't have some cheering fans in the grandstands to congratulate him. I highly doubt it will be his last victory though.

Its going to be interesting to see another round at the same track in only 6 days. Unless the weather is radically different I imagine a lot of the riders at the pointy end already have the most of their bike setup already sorted?
