What is the point of competing in sports with a broken arm? His wrist is broken too, right? or is it his ankle?...anyway, it's not like anything is on the line. He's not getting very good advice. He's been banged up all season from crashing that turnip truck so often. He needs to be 100% for next season.

I'm sure there's lots of internal and external pressure to make an appearance if possible at the premier level of the sport. But that bike, ridden in an effort to try and compete, tends to hurt people. Yes I know that all bikes crash but I think I'm right about the Ducati. If Stoner was still with Ducati he'd have a few more injuries I'd wager. Rossi has managed to restrain himself and ride the bike with a sense of self-preservation.

If it was ME, I'd go out and run the bike a little cooler when I was injured. Easy to say but tough to do once the race starts. I don't race bikes but I am a long-distance runner, and when I race with an injury, the mindset before the race is to show restraint, but when people start passing you it's easy to forget. Of course my chances of high-siding off the course are much lower :D

The downfall to your theory is that unless you push it those last few percent the tires won't get hot enough

I agree, and that's the problem with that bike- push it where it needs to be and smashy smashy. Or the problem's with the tire :deal

I'm wiff you, mate. He really needs to take a break. Beatn yourself up, and risking more by riding injured, (again!), ain't too clever. Right hand too...

I'm convinced that Carmelo Ezpeleta is suffering some effects.
