Amazing, you get the impression that had his foot been amputated he would have put pressure on the prosthetic manufacturer to have his new foot ready for the race... This man constantly impresses me with his pure dedication to the gods of speed, Go Cal

I hope this injury doesn't end his Motogp career. Becoming a back marker fighting pain or not able to compete in a few races due to a possible surgery would be unfortunate. Well maybe Yamaha can get back in World Superbikes and team him up with Spies, that would be a nice one two punch and make the series even more exciting.

This makes me remember when Lorenzo broke his ankle and rode the bike to 4th place... That's dedication.... he couldnt leave the bike without help and he couldnt even stand...

I've broken a ankle in the past and it hurts, the ankles really swell up and the pain just gets worse. I reckon he will get a good pain killing injection before they head out, but he will be limited on how much weight he can put on it. This will make maneuvering on the bike difficult. It will be interesting to see if he can make race distance.

First I think it was reported he broke it, then yesterday (last night) it was just sprained, now we hear its broken again! Seems to be a bit secretive this guy is but what was great is he finished a very good 6th in the end even beating the factory bikes of Rossi & Hayden!
