These Guys are hard - make no mistake, but I can't help wonder if this is too fast and a faster recovery would be better with a slower start?
However, if Cal rides - we'll all be supporting for sure.

Hes determined, tough as nails and has the best doctors around him. Just hope he doesnt rush back too soon. Missing 1 extra race to be totally sure its healed up in the grand scheme of things isnt the worst idea in the world. Then again Im not a loon!

Ice packs and painkillers all round at Tech 3 then.

On the good side, Assen is mostly right-handers. And it might rain.

Seems crazy soon to me tho. This time last week he was on a morphine drip. I hope he's getting good advice.

According to twitter he was out on a two and a half hour bike ride with Bradley Smith yesterday.... christ if it was me I'd still be sulking in bed on a morphine drip getting spoon fed!

Slow and steady might not win the race but there's a very good chance you'll pick up some points!
