"I looked down and saw my foot was at a strange angle to my leg. I had a shooting pain in my lower leg, then I felt a crack as my ankle popped back in" - Casey Ston

"Repsol Honda have confirmed Stoner has suffered 'several small chipped bone fractures, a 10mm fracture on the talar dome below the tibia and fibula, contusions to the anterior tibia, posterior tibia and medial malleolus, and soft tissue swelling around the ankle. He has also torn his deltoid, anterior talofibial, calcaneal and fibular ligaments in addition to a high ankle sprain'."
Or as we say in Scotland he has hurt his ankle! Sounds nippy right enough but he will be ok for the next race good luck to him. I hope he does not go for the race as he is a rider who does not know his limit and might have another fall, on the otherhand he could win the race he is that kind of rider! - Unregistered

I read from this that he will not be taking part or if he is he will not be able to put up a fight...

Tough news, whichever angle you might look into it.

It is not a personal tragedy, of course, he is just hurting his leg, but in sportive terms it may make (even) more difficult to defend his title.

To Lorenzo or Pedrosa, too, it's not that great news since I am sure that are confident on themselves to beat a fully fit Stoner to the race or title.

Some injuries that made some changes to the title fight):

Assen 1992 - Doohan (and Doohan should have won!)
Italy 1993 - Rainey (but Schwantz deserved the title)
Assen 2006 - Rossi (but Hayden deserved the title)
Mugello 2010 - Rossi (but Lorenzo deserved the title)

so the haters on here bash rossi saying he's not trying and willing to risk himself at this track.
Casey is injured and not sure weather he will race and you tell him "its not worth the risk"
