Unhappy Valentino Rossi Broken Fibula and Tibula In Enduro Crash

Valentino Rossi injured in enduro accident? | MotoGP

It looks like Vale might've broken his leg again! I'm sure he will be out for the Italian gp this weekend, and possibly crushing his hopes of a championship this year.

What we've got here, is failure to communicate.

Yeah, a big bummer to be sure. Was looking forward to the four rider battle to the finish. I wonder if Yamaha will take this chance to see what Zarco can do on the factory machine.

Shame that you think that the factory teams would have it in contracts as they can't ride other stuff

Rossi has been off the pace so far and was probably trying to get his mojo back and has come unstuck. I personally think he will call it a day after this year.

Is training on Enduros really that beneficial mid-season, relative to the risk?

Seems dirt bikes have injured more riders than any other training.... of course, it was a bicycle that took Nicky from us.

In defense of dirt bike training...recall that all the American's that went to GP and dominated for a bit (Roberts, Lawson, Rainey, Hayden etc) learned their craft sliding dirt trackers around horse tracks.

Sucks that this happened. It has been a great season to date.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Looks like he will at least miss the next two races, hoping to be back for the triple flyaway
