He's brave.
He's tough.
And he's taking a way bigger risk than the poor sod probably realises.

At 41 days its a tribute to his fitness and the surgeons and physios he is so mobile. He can probably ride a bike fine too.
Question is tho, can his leg withstand it if he stacks it again? I doubt it. I just hope to fk we don't get to find out too.

This is what makes this sport great, riders who are as tough as nails.....could you imagine a top golfer or tennis player coming back from a broken leg after just 41 days?

Amusingly, the BBC Sport website's article stating that Bautista intends to return 6 weeks after a broken femur is immiedately below a story about a rugby player who will be out for 6 weeks with a broken thumb! And they say rugby players are tough...
