A fracture to the scaphoid as well, I believe. And a damaged tendon.

Bradley was lucky not to suffer worse injury being so close to the bike through the gravel trap. Pretty grisly sight to see his glove flapping away from his hand when he crawled away. You knew at that point he had to have lost a good bit of skin from his hand while trapped under the bike. A very unlucky and painful injury.
