You could still win with one arm tied behind you back.

I am sure he will be keen to get it sorted, but compared to last year he is way ahead on points, so even as podium finish will keep the championship close.

What's with the "we" need to fix the arm pump???? The arm pump is down to Casey, not the rest of his team. Casey needs to strengthen the muscles in his forearms which means doing certain exercises. I used to suffer from arm pump a few years ago, but after changing my weights routine and including ones to specifically target my forearms, I haven't had a problem!! These exercises have to be done all the time though, not just used as a temporary cure! Come on Casey, don't drag your team into your problem!!!!

@ Osvaldo.
Isn't it about time you watched Moto GP regularly! It's common knowledge that he uses the 'royal' we when talking to the press. Spies and quite a few other riders do it too.

Casey, to help with the arm pump, why don't you let the missus have turns on top!! lol

All the guys are fit & strong enough to do race distance in Moto GP. Exercises to increase muscle in the forearm will make things worse. Try this yourself, clench your fist & hold it tight, for 5 mins & you get the sensation of arm pump. Relax and it goes away! same as Casey did for the last few laps.

I also know people who have had the operation to solve the problem...it did'nt work!!
