Lorenzo had got all wrong,, damage limitation should have been his aim this weekend line in Assen,, trying to be the boss when he is not 100% made him pay for it.

No rider can pull a big points lead this season because if one injures there are two others to take away points from each other. Dani is the leader but Rossi starting to step up his pace should have already started to mess in the heads of Dani. Also Dani is prone to bad lucks like DNFs, health issues and crash injuries. More importantly he cracks under pressure easily than the other3 big boys.

So if crown is the ultimate target of JL then he should have waited to come back real strong... Now I feel he is either too defensive in title fight as he desperately fights to limit damages against dani or he is over confident wanting to stamp his authority of great hero riding great with injuries.

Gutted for him.Was hoping for some decent points from Jorge this weekend but there you go,sh*t happens.Not the end of his challenge yet however.Any one can have a DNF and thats all it takes to let someone back in to the title hunt.
Get well soon kid!

This is very unfortunate for Lorenzo, he has worked so hard on his recovery last couple of weeks and was very confident this weekend. You can't tell a guy that gives it all to slow down and take it easy, it does not register in their brains. He was looking really strong in Pedrosa's backyard and a win was not out of question.
Now, here's is something interesting that I saw today, the tires are to blame for most of the crashes today, most on the right hand corners. The tires are losing temperature faster this time around catching a lot of guys off guard and forcing others to be really cautious, The bridgestones this year have been horrible, too soft for many, and most teams struggle with assymetrical tires they provide. Anyways, knowing Lorenzo, he'll prolly be back next week depending on the points he lose this weekend but I kinda wish he comes back at Indy a month from now and try to mount a herculian comeback to win the tittle, that will also aliviate his engine situation as we

I feel there may be a chance for Rossi in the c'shi now that he's finding the bike and the team has only him to focas on...Dani panics when the pressure is on, Marc is still finding the limits- though doing well- and it looks like Jorge has now blown will be harder for him now to come back. I'm sure his confidence is shot and brought it about rightly so pushing to hard to soon. I wish him a good recovery and wisdom

Guys, if Joerge will only miss this one it will be like a single DNF, Rossi already has had one -though not him fault, MM has already had one... They might even have another one and so can Dani..

So no, I don't think this is the end for him..

re: "Again he has hit the left shoulder and the plate has been bent,"

okay, so what's the story on these airbag suits, 'cause that's 2x now. do they or do they not work...? or is the problem, Lorenzo catches air like Jordan...?

JeeezzZZZzzZZ..It's not like JLo at all...for the last 2 years he defines the perfection of bike riding...smooth...flowing...without any serious moment...but the last two weeks reminds me when JLo was a rookie...too much pressure pal??
