I saw this coming yesterday when it was announced that he cracked his hip and some vertebra and was going to try it out in the warm up.

You have cracked your vertebra for crying out loud - that's nothing to sneeze at. Rest up.

Ha. U know we're jokin.

But seriously, the kid may be likable but he's
crashed 5 out of 9 races this year. Only
finished 4 races with positions of 10th, 12th,
13th and 14th. He's only podium'd 2 times since 2006 in GP. Not a good track record (pun
intented ha). Facts are facts.

My guess is theres prob some hungrier more
skilled blood waiting to take his place next year. He might be out of his league in GP. They'll
prob ask him to bow out gracefully. I wish
him well. Race on kid.

btw "fractures to his vertebra, and pelvic injuries, but had intended to try and ride in the warm-up." Could you ever imagine a top league footballer (soccer player) trying to play on with these injuries? In the UK they only need to bump into each other and they are rolling around on the ground like they've been shot. Motorcycle racers are the hardest men (and women) out there. Amazing.

A broken back and you pull out the race Randy? This reminds me of the time you had a little leg break and took a whole 3 weeks or something to come back.
