    No definitive answers yet. In Med Ctr for more tests and Xrays. Looks like a left collar bone. His right should is the one that has been injured and looks like it hopefully escaped unscathed.

    Looked to me like the Ducati front end got him. Slipped and gripped which let the rear go to flick him OTB.

    Reports are that Ben is out for the weekend. While I believe that to be true, they said that about Lorenzo at Assen, too.

    I would love to see his success continue. We'll see more in a bit and again tomorrow. Pedrosa set his time on a hard tires, so he obviously has not shown his hand yet.

    Colin Edwards is the fastest he has ever been in the claimers. He's looking good to clean house this weekend. :clap

    Q done, and perfect with two sessions left.

    Any doubters?

    Marq is the Man this weekend. :deal

    Five seconds over number two tomorrow. :D

    MM really gapped the field. And only five bikes within a second of him.

    Surprising to see Rossi and Bradl so far back.

    And Hayden on the second row, well ahead of his teammate.

    The race could be a snoozer, assuming MM checks out at the start.

    Sure hope we've seen the last of the carnage, as we don't need any more injured riders.

    When Marquez lit it up through T14, I thought he was going to launch it.

    I was waiting for Hayden and Iannone to self destruct trying to follow him, too.

    Wow, a 1/2 second over second place! I hope Lorenzo gets a good start to try and thwart Marquez for the race.
