    Those fractures just hurt when you put your weight on them or apply a ton of muscle force... they are not actually clean breaks in the bone, just tiny cracks.

    Running with hairline fractures in your ankle or taking batting practice with hairline fractures in your wrist = horrible pain you can't stand since it just keeps hitting you and every time the pain will get a little more intense

    Motorcycling with them = annoying but doable as most of the time it's OK and then every once in a while you'll just feel a little pain and wince.

    This sucks though... and if he crashes again he could be f*cked.

    Maybe this will open the way for Hayden. I kept my eye on him last season, and this year he's doing pretty damn good. It's nice to see other people be on top besides Rossi.

    wow this is news...
    Rossi never has big offs.

    Could it be that he's feeling the pressure to over perform due to Nicky's lead in the points ?

    Could Rossi be tasting a bit of his own medicine?

    I think not... but its definitely looking better now for Hayden !

    He's the only one now that is left standing and he's in the points lead !

    They have the video BTW on MotoGP.com

    It looks like he highsided in a very high speed corner. He slid/flipped at least 100ft into the sand trap.

    Nasty stuff!

    Depending on the direction of the fracture through the arm, OR the leg for that matter, the forces he endures during braking or conering could be enough to worsen the fracture and do even more damage! Not that it would stop him from getting back on...

    Rossi four seconds off the pace.
    In last on the grid ! Only 13 laps and no attempts in the last 15 minutes.

    Looks like he's damaged goods for now.
    Cappirossi in 15th.

    Edwards looks strong.

    Hopkins on the Pole and Nakano second on the grid...

    This sucks for Rossi but we are getting a better season out of it then if he was just crushing everyone!

    I want to see Hopkins get his first Podium finish...
