Go Nicky. Since he is known as someone as having one of the best training regimens, why wouldn't he be training. Rossi trains doing rally, others race off season. You expect any racer to just sit and wait for the season. Its a risk that pays off when the fun starts. You can get injured just walking down the street, might as well do something you love.
GO NICKY. Cant wait till the season starts.

While most of us would still be drowning in pain killers, these guys are figuring out how they can get back on thair bikes and go 200+ mph as soon as possible! Nicky is as tough as they come. Good on ya mate!
...and for those who think they shouldn't train on dirt, What would you have them do? Sit around and be Tina's all winter so they can crash thair brains out first race of the season due to lack of seat time?
Grass track is my winter training of choice!

lol those things dont hurt enough to take pain killers shyt Ive broken both, and my ribs an never needed any, an at their young age they heal fast, 6 weeks max... the real prob is they cant put cast on sholders or ribs...
and it can actually be better to do surgery on a collar bone b/c then it doesnt move about ie better stability therefor it heals faster:)) good luck Nicky hope you an Dovi have a fast an strong recovery...

Bradley Dear,

Don't point out the obvious.

The question at hand is the costs vs benefits of off-season MX training (ie is the risk of picking up an off-season injury worth the MX benefit?)

Over your head a bit?
