When he fell, Kubica was recovering from some serious surgery, so it isn't unlikely to fall if there is ice and you don't have your full health/mobility.

And his broken leg was not a new injury, AFAIK, but a refructuring of a bone he fractured or broke in his rally accident. AFAIK, e slipped and aggrevated an existing condition. So he really only had 2 accidents, Canada and rally.

Can somebody please explain why everyone suggests West for any vacant ride. He is obviously very good or he wouldn't have raced at the level he has in the past, but I don't see him as the immediate replacement for any injured rider. In my opinion there are other more deserving riders who have not yet had a chance to show what they can do on a competitive bike, West has had chances and not made the most of them.

At least Hopper's accident occurred while he was doing his proper day job, not like Kubica whose accident was in a rally car, or Hutchy whose accident was in a stunt show, or the others injured from having a mad afternoon on Moto-X bikes.
Get well properly, Hopper, sit out Phillip Island and then come back strong.

Poor guy has mad talent but the Racing Gods strike him down every time he starts looking competetive..

He needs to give it up and just open a race school, its obvious he will never make the Big Show and stay for a full season.
