Neukirchner confirmed with broken leg

It has been confirmed that Suzuki Alstare Brux's Max Neukirchner has suffered a broken femur after coming off worst in a first corner pile-up at Monza.

The German was caught up in the freak accident after Brendan Roberts, several places behind, collided with a rival and came down on the grass on the run up to the first corner chicane. His Guandalini Ducati would proceed to skid across the grass down to the opening bend and collect Neukirchner at high-speed.

Neukirchner had entered the corner with the lead of the race following a fast start from fourth on the grid, but was caught in the wrong place when Roberts' bike came across his path.

The accident has left the German with a broken femur on his right leg, as well as a dislocated right foot, injuries that could keep him out of action for some time. He is to undergo surgery immediately.

Roberts, meanwhile, picked up several bruises and wouldn't compete for the remainder of the weekend, while Makoto Tamada, who also fell in the same place, is believed to have suffered a wrist injury too.

Sorry for Max, that crash looked terrible, didn't even see it coming. Get well soon. Mladin Needs to get on that bike and simply bring it. With him on the suzuki it would be all out war in Utah and/or Kayalami. I would pay money to see that match up. It would shut the yaps of all the ignorant ******s who just don't know any better but enjoy flaunting their ignorance but more importantly it would be the death match of racing on the world stage, Spies vs. Mladin. Simply put, this match up NEEDS to happen. Period.
