Rossi shocker!

For the first time in his career Valentino Rossi will miss his home GP at Mugello, Italy following a nasty highside during free practice session 2. Rossi has broken his right tibia (shin bone) following the horrendous crash. It is unknown how long he will be out of action, but the incident will probably see Rossis' championship hopes sadly dashed.

For the latest news and a free video of the crash, visit An interview with the track side doctor on the website reads as follows;

Doctor Macchiagodena of the Clinica Mobile told “It’s an injury more serious than we thought, because it’s an exposed fracture with the bone protruding from the skin. We have reduced the fracture, which fortunately has not affected any blood vessels or nerves.”
“It is serious, it could be a couple of months, but it is too early to say just yet. He remained calm, but having seen the images he could already see it was a nasty fall.”

The VERY best wishes to you Vale and a swift recovery. It looks like it bloody hurt!

Be well.
