Isn't a stuck throttle what caused Kato's crash? And a crash by Hayden that same year? All on Hondas...

Bad luck for Dani, I was starting to cheer for him. Other riders have ridden with plated collarbones, but I don't know if their breaks were as bad. Hopefully he can get surgery on it and still compete at the remaining races.

'A small problem with the throttle cable didn't allow Pedrosa to close the throttle when he came to brake, an issue which has already been investigated and resolved,' said the Repsol Honda press release.'

You call THAT a small problem!!! Well, that SMALL PROBLEM has probably cost Danny any chance he had at the world championship.

Credit to Honda for being honest........for a change.

At least Dani and the World now knows it was not a mistake on his part, knowing how people like to leap to conclusions, especially on here!
