Real shame what happened, it could be pole position but surely front row. This looks to be Ben's best weekend this year, if he won't crash (and his bike won't broke!) he must perform very good.

I know the line is fine, a knife-edge, but such a shame Ben dropped it and got beaten up.

it just looks like something has to go pear-shaped for the bloke every weekend. Hopefully he can salvage something today - its a big ask to expect him to run right up front after that big body slam yesterday.

With Stoner & Ben hurt, Dovi's chances of putting the satellite T3 on the box once again now look very strong indeed. Maybe Bradl and Dovi scrapping for the 3rd place if Ben's de-tuned?

That photo screams pain. Can see that taking the edge off his pace. Anybody that ever been injured, swollen and stiff just walking around could appreciate such an injury impacting how theses guys have to perform and react. A shame.

For the *****s giving the thumbs down to Ben being OK, getting better whatever... If you are even capable of thinking about it next time you are sick, injured, or down in any way, imagine the thumbs down coming your way. Douche bags all
