That break was a nasty one. Not a supporter of his but an overall fan of the sport and if you read my posts you may think that I hate Rossi. I don't. I don't like his blocking teammates and others access to equipment. I hate the rubbish spewed by his blind faithful. I wouldn't wish that injury on anyone. Hopefully not too much recovery time will be necessary and he will be back to 100% quickly. Then the gloves can come off and we will see if his new bike gets him close to Lorenzo and Casey. Hate it if excuses fly so I will sit and wait for the outcome. This isn't one in the tank for you guys if its between casey jorge and dani(and occassionally Spies).The FTR is a step in the right direction and will definitely be easier to ride.

It will be 7 months when I have broken my leg like that. Still have my rod in. I tell you, you dont want to know how this hurts. Im not his fan but damn, I respect his courage to ride motorcycle again to its limits.

Rumour has it that the rod weighs 4kilos and he only had it removed to get around the up coming weight penalty!
Only joking lads.Couldnt resist it!

I completely forgot he had that rod in his leg well I actually thought he had it removed already! Maybe this is the start of a year that might feature some luck after the last two years which he has had luck that I wouldn't even want or no one would! The guy deserves some luck and to be competitive again. I hope 2012 is far and away better than 2010 & 2011
