How long before Rossi does the how's the ankle (shoulder) dig when Stoner cant get a good result?

Lorenzo was racing with 2 broken ankles Stoner said Lorenzo was just acting and there was nothing wrong with his ankles. Stoner should just shut up and get on with it, he has had 8 weeks off his he just acting like he said Lorenzo was?

Stoners mouth bites him in the ass again.

During practice at the Chinese MotoGP Jorge had a stunning highside rendering both ankles broken and utterly useless. Nobody told that to the often outspoken Spaniard though, who after push starting a stalled bike off the line rode to an incredible 4th place. After 22 laps of pure agony in high humidity, Jorge celebrated his 21st birthday by watching Rossi and co take their place on the podium.

Two weeks later Jorge was back on the bike for the French round at Le Mans. After being lifted onto the bike he promptly jumped off it in the first practice session. When 99% of other racers would have gone home to lick their wounds Jorge opted instead to lick a lollypop. Practice session two saw crash number two but still Gorgeous George hadn't had enough. The second place that he rode gave Yamaha a vital 1-2-3 on the podium.

He was carried up the steps to the podium, then sat on a chair (lollypop still in gob), much to the admiration of fans and fellow racers. If ever there was any doubt ove

I damaged the ligaments in my ankle in an industrial accident (so nothing to do with motorsport). It took ages to recover from and even when it stopped being painful i barely had enough strength to push the accelerator pedal down in my car. So ok these days they have surgery and improved rehabilitation techniques but even so the fact he is out there and punting a bike around should be admired, not ridiculed by the unwashed masses who probably whinge for weeks after a paper cut!!!!

BTW I thought Lorenzo was actually a F*&king idiot for trying to ride with his injuries, but bit of research reveals that Lorenzo suffered from BRUISED ankles & broken metatarsals, which need to break VERY seriously to even NEED surgery. While I am sure it was painful and made riding the bike difficult, to make a direct comparison between him and Stoner is, frankly, uninformed drivel!

Mick Doohan 1992

Quote
After rescue and relocation, a radical op performed by Doctor Claudio Costa's Clinica Mobile saved his legs from being sawn off and speeded up his recovery. Seven weeks after his crash, as weak as a kitten and with his leg withered and useless, Doohan came back to defend what was left of his once imperious 57-point Championship lead at the hideously dangerous Interlagos circuit.

Stoner should just stop moaning and get riding compared to Micks accident Stoners just had a scratch.
