Well i said yesterday that Dani needed to take full advantage of Jorges predicament.
Well,it looks like the Gods of misfortune have sh*t on him again.Even if he does start the race it will be from 12th as Jorge did in Assen.
This whole scenario could well play into Marcs hands!
But i get the feeling a certain Italian bloke could be sitting in the wings with a big grin on his chops!

Marquez will take 1st or 2nd (..with Rossi filling in whatever spot Marquez doesn't occupy). If he takes 1st, that puts him square in the WC lead with Pedrosa and Lorenzo in 2nd and 3rd. Rossi will be 4th in the WC by the end of the weekend.

You do know Dani intends to race tomorrow right Realist?

Dani has a soar shoulder for sure, but if his ligaments and range of motion are sound and he manages the swelling he should manage a good score, some tight braking but not as bad some other tracks on the brakes, if Dani can ride nice and loose and his tires dont fail him like they have been most season he can grab a podium.

@ pcxmac

Yes, I realize that he likely will race tomorrow. Even still, Marquez could emerge with the WC lead come the conclusion of tomorrow's race. It's entirely possible. Dani will still have to contend with a strong Rossi and Crutchlow, and as we've seen this year, Dani has fallen down the pecking order.

I never really rated Dani as a rider if Im honest. But I feel bad for him as this is his best chance to win the Moto GP title before the Marquez era takes over. Hoping for a quick recovery so the title race has more people involved :)

Come on Dani boy, be fit for tomorrow's race and fight for the win. You need to grab the most points as possible. Fight like a lion. I have no doubt that even from 12 th position you can win i still remember last year in Valencia when you won the race from the pitlane. Do your super take off starts and gain the 1st position on the first on the first corner.

Who knows, shoulders are tricky.

But Pedrosa has won races before while carrying serious injuries.

I think he should race if at all possible

These tires are sh1t, Bridgestone need to provide something more predictable.

If you don't rate Dani as a rider then god knows what you think of everyone else who has raced in Moto GP over the last decade with the exception of three riders...

I think he'll race, just hope he doesn't exacerbate the injury like Jorge.
