Hope Cal recovers quick and well and can make the step to the next level.Seems orite so far but probably in over his head here.You Brits may as well jump on the Stoner bandwagon if you want some joy.

I admire this guy's respect for other racers and I hope he recovers soon and show's those that keep saying he's out of his league wrong. I do hope anyways and I believe he'll mature well in MotoGP.

Never good to hear of injuries, all the best to Cal for his recovery.
Can't help thinking he may have stepped up to GP a little too soon for the good of his career.
Hopefully I'm wrong, we need some pommy talent on the grid.

Matt Birt posted up a photo of Cal's wrecked glove on his twitter page. Pretty grim pic, with blood showing inside the shredded leather. Looking at the state of it I don't know how he's even got a finger left at all.

Wishing a quick recovery for him.

Bummer.

CAN WE SAY TROYYY BAYLISSSS?

Listen Cal, you've got nothing to prove to anyone this season and guess what, your bike is junk so you aren't going to be winning anything and probably won't even get on the podium at all. Don't push that junk bike so hard that you seriously injure yourself.

It's not worth it.

I just knew we'd hear the drums beating that Cal is on something inferior to what Colin's on. Giving Edwards the goods? As if Cal is on inferior equipment? Gimme a break, this is getting old and a poor excuse and reminds me of the JT era. Thank goodness Cal doesn't pull that.

He will heal and that 2010-spec Yamaha M1 will be going well by mid season. Just don't expect miracles.

Your right KTMKen, Cal and Colin will be on the same equipment. It'll be down to experience and confidence to get the bike working better, it sounds like he may have been on the right path, where Cal mentions "balance", getting the right transfer and balance is everything and once you get it right to your preference then he'll be on his way.
