The shoulder is ok for this?????Driving on ice requires lots of sudden steering wheel movements.Surely that cannot be good for a bad shoulder??And a go kart as well???The steering on a kart is not assisted so therefore much heavier??I hope it will not do damage to the shoulder???Also on the racing of Alonso part.Didn't Rossi say a couple of years ago something about this story??He said Alonso's legs are too short to reach the ground on a bike.haha.That was a bit too much from Rossi.

Lest we forget...

Alonso really did say "I could do the same in bikes if I was given enough time to practice"

Rossi called him out, Alonso shut up and hid.

The mind-boggling stupidity and arrogance of Alonso's claim give you an insight to his mindset and that of the gallery he is playing to.

Rossi has proved he can get within a second of a competitive F1 time, Alonso would never get within 10 seconds of Rossi's on a bike, in a MOTOGP/F1/WRC competition Alonso would get utterly humiliated. If a Rookie can beat him in F1, it is quite possible Rossi would win 3/3 of the challenges.

mmm,I fancy the bloke on the far left of the picture.
Ain't that Nick ?
As for Alonso on two wheels.Well,the mighty Michael couldn't get within 7 seconds of race pace at Mugello on the D16 some years back,if my memory serves me.
That was after plenty of practise and racing bikes.
Still,not too shabby by Michael all things considered.
Oh, to be a fly on the wall in the dolomites, two weeks hence !!!
