Correct 46V...

The type of fracture will dictate the length of recovery. However, these types of fractures CAN be very serious, affecting the whole leg, and Alvaro could be out for two or three months. Guess we'll know more after the surgery.

I would love to see the Hopper back but this is just bad timing. The femur is one of the hardest bones to break in the body and recovery time should be at least 3 months. I hope he doesn't rush it. Y quel doctor te cura muy bien. Con pizza y unas cervesas te recuperas mas rapido. :)

Redding? Marquez? Anyone....

Would love to see that!

Bad bad news for Suzuki, would have been great to see Hopper back where he belongs. Isn't Niall Mackenzie there watching his son? That'd be interesting :)
