    Its pretty common for plates to bend if the bone hasn't knitted.
    Bone is stronger than a plate, the plate is screwed into the bone so the ends of the bone are held together so they can heal, if the bone hasn't healed like Marquez,Lorenzo and Hayden in 2006 then if you crash the plate bends and the bone either rubs off the other one which is painful and risks further infection or sits at a bad angle so the bone is a funny shape and you may have mobility issues.
    Hayden rode the whole 2006 season with a bent plate so the medical staff wouldn't prevent him from competing.
    It worked he won the WC.

    Marc Marquez back on track for FP3 ,Cal also on track but Rins is not running in FP3 .

    Wanted to post but site was funky but yeah Marc sat out FP1 & FP2 but looking at the times the other two did post Rins and Crutchlow are badly off pace. Probably should have just subbed in Guintoli and Bradl for them.

    Cal was faster than Bradley albeit a second of the front runners - Rins was only 2 seconds off but in a lot of pain.

    WC going to be tight this year and no rider wants to miss a race.
    MM doing decent one lap times - longevity questionable.

    Looking forward to quali - find out the true pace of the KTMS

    If Marc is not going to miss any races then I don't think it will be a close championship at all. He's so far ahead of everyone else on the grid and well on his way to being the goat. FQ is good and has great potential, but he's no MM.

    I don't for a second wish Marc ill will but I did see him being out for a couple of events as being a big positive for this years championship.

    He abandoned qualifying 1 so he may not race this weekend. In my opinion he should skip this weekend and they are not racing next weekend. That's a lot more healing time. If he raced this weekend and got no points, which is very possible, then it was for nothing.

    Yea judging by the amount of swelling on his arm as he left the motorhome there now, I'd say he's called it a day as far as this weekend in concerned.

    Yamaha looking good. Could be a close race tomorrow.

    Edit: MM officially out of tomorrows race.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,303 ✭✭✭✭pjohnson


    Was far too ambitious. Shocking he was "cleared" in the first place.

      FQ is going to be MM biggest threat in future years - his performance on a satellite Yamaha in '19 was sensational.

      Brno & Austria are Ducati circuits so Dovi and Co will be to the forefront and will give the Yams and MM a tough time.

      MMs arm looked very swollen on those BT pictures.

      Why was it shocking ? MM underwent rigorous tests on the injuries and was medically cleared by Doctors.

      Come on they cant have been that rigourous. He managed 17 full laps this weekend skipping 2 FP's entirely before officially giving up, and just LOOK at the arm.


    4. Registered Users Posts: 14,906 ✭✭✭✭CJhaughey


      I doubt it was solely down to the arm, Yes that was the worst injury but I am sure a 160k get off will do more damage to the body.
      Its possibly what we can't see that is more troublesome to him.

      Apparently Marc was upset because thats the most consecutive race starts record out of reach now. Was on 127. Dovi on 21. Rossi did 170.


    7. Registered Users Posts: 7,101 ✭✭✭Max Headroom


      Just caught the end of the lekky bike race..anyone know the spec on these.?

      Marc said he suddenly felt a complete loss of power in his arm when he was readying himself for another run. He was simply not fit enough to ride this weekend.

      Crazy race so far.

      Very enjoyable. Delighted for Rossi. Hopefully he can stay competitive.


    11. Registered Users Posts: 4,630 ✭✭✭Infoanon


      Gutted for Pecco - next 3 races are Ducati circuits - Yamaha must be concerned about those engines.

      Lin Jarvis just gave a very interesting interview on BT where he was pointing the finger in part at the Japanese being unwilling to make the changes Rossi wanted.Also.interesting to hear him comment that Dovi underperformed this weekend.

      Not a huge fan of the "premier class" of racing , nor have ever been a Rossi fan, but credit where its due the boy old man done good .....:p

      Rossi won the 250 title the year FQ was born, how mad is that!

      The level is so, so high all the way down through the field that it’s unlikely Rossi will win another title but if he did I wouldn’t be surprised.
      He doesn’t have that extra do or die gear anymore.
      If he gets the bike where he likes it he is good for a few wins at certain tracks or definitely Fighting at the front.

      Oh And Rossi is the only other person bar Lorenzo to finish ahead of Marc in a championship since Marc arrived in MotoGP , which in turn makes him the only rider on the grid to have finished ahead of Marc in a championship.
      So we need him for that too, so we have 1 person at least that can say they have beaten Marc.. :-D

      Back to Jerez this weekend but instead of the GP circus ,its time for the Superbikes!
      There won't be many rounds of SBK this year with the UK, Netherlands and Qatar being cancelled, so if you want to see the new Honda on track with the Kawasaki and Ducati then this is a rare opportunity.

      Looking forward to the IOW next year....:)

      Road racing in the UK in the middle of October... what are they thinking?


    19. Registered Users Posts: 4,630 ✭✭✭Infoanon


      Confirmation from Dorna that all the fly away races are now cancelled.
      Not a huge surprise though there were hopes for Malaysia.

      An additional round in Europe is to be added - believed to be Portimao - announcement due August 10th.

      That means a maximum of 14 rounds this year - if Le Man's goes ahead

      WSBK...Great ride from Redding today......very disappointing again from Laverty...38 seconds back...:(

      No joy for McGlinchy either...

      Could be fireworks

      Was good watching him and the Irwin's and Hicky in BSB last season

      I think laverty will be the one dropped from BMW to make room for Michael. It will be justified too - he has not done much in a long time.

      Embarrassing start to the 600's. Feel a bit sorry for that guy, but still ride into the back of another bike.
