Cool Where's Rossi

Rossi suffers injury at Mugello
The Fiat Yamaha will miss the Gran Premio d’Italia TIM after suffering a displaced and exposed fracture of his right tibia in a crash in practice.
For the first time in his career Valentino Rossi will not participate in his home GP at Mugello. A highside crash in the second practice session on Saturday morning at the Gran Premio d’Italia TIM has led to the Italian’s withdrawal from Sunday’s race, with the full period of time of his recovery yet to be determined.
The defending World Champion fell at Turn 13, the top of the fast chicane, as his M1 highsided and threw him from the bike. Rossi was stretchered from the track and taken directly to the medical centre, where he underwent X-rays which confirmed a displaced and exposed fracture of his right tibia.
Doctor Macchiagodena of the Clinica Mobile told motogp.com: “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.”
Rossi was then flown by helicopter to the Careggi Hospital in Florence for a further medical examination. Doctor Macchiagodena explained to motogp.com that Rossi will then be moved to the orthopaedic trauma centre, which is close to the hospital, where he is likely to be operated on later today.

ROssi will be busy with the Aaron Yates rest and recovery system. Expect to see him in September. Does this mean Nick is the substitute alien?

MotoGP Man Dr. Costa: It's Worse Than We Initially Thought
by dean adams
Saturday, June 05, 2010
MotoGP medical man Dr. Claudio Costa just told the BBC that the broken leg Valentino Rossi suffered in a morning practice highside is worse than initially thought.

"It's a more serious fracture than we expected ..." he said.

Costa told reporters that Rossi suffered both a broken fibula and tibia in the crash. If true, he has completely broken his lower leg.

Sporting injuries are as varied as the sports. Moreover, doctors and surgeons treating these injuries can sometimes have differing opinions.

Some orthopedic surgeons actually will express relief upon seeing a patient with both a broken tibia and fibula. These doctors suggest that having just the fibula or tibia broken can prolong healing times, as the unbroken bone doesn't always allow the broken bone good contact for healing.

Regardless, a double leg break already described as "displaced and exposed" may mean a long healing process before Valentino Rossi can ride a motorcycle. Presumably Rossi will undergo surgery where various rods, screws and plates will be installed in his leg to rejoin the broken bones and speed recovery. But rarely do these injuries heal as fast as some expect.

For example, American Aaron Yates suffered a broken tibia and fibula in a crash at Fontana in late March. Yates underwent surgery after the crash to fix the breaks and remove old hardware from previous injuries.

Just this week his doctor allowed Yates to start putting weight on the broken leg.

He hopes to return to riding at Mid-Ohio later this Summer.

I think even if he makes it back in September he'll be lucky. He's out. Someone needs to step up their game and not let Lorenzo win. Divo doesn't have the maturity yet, Hayden on the other hand does. If Stoner ever comes back from his break last year he could win the thing and seeing Rossi now it just might inspire Stoner to get serious and stop having fluke accidents, like o warm up laps:?

Pedrosa might beable to be a real threat if he can go as fast at the end as he does in the begining. Also obviously everyone moves up a slot. And that means Ben aswell.

Speed's job is to make money and stay in business-not cater to the 6 people who watch MotoGP qualifying.

Funny those six people must have gotten some of speeds attention, you haven't heard of Speed2? Such hateful words from a motorcyclist, or not.

"Rossi is irreplaceable".* Starting from this assumption, Yamaha isn't worrying too much about finding a rider to race the M1 in the next two Grand Prix, in England and Holland.* From the third GP onwards, however, a Dorna regulation will require the team to chose another rider for the bike.
"The most likely solution would involve an in house rider," explained William Favero, communications director for the team, "but we don't think it will be Ben Spies. Rather we are thinking about one of our test riders, Fujiwara o Yoshikawa."
So the Hopkins hypothesis has disappeared as fast as it appeared, especially considering that he himself is recovering from an injury.

Default Oh, the irony!

Oh, the irony! The Doctor needs a doctor. Now maybe Hayden can move the Duck up!

Very sad to hear of this injury to Val. I did the same thing when I was 9. It's not a fun injury.
