Why do they test at Daytona? Is it the hardest track on tires or what? That track is just crazy scary to ride a bike on. This just BLOWS!!! Have a fast and safe recovery. I wish him well.

Daytona is probably the most important race--or so they say. Probably the WORST track and probably the hardest on tires! At least he didn't crash on the banking! Glad to hear he is relatively okay!

No doubt. Scary, scary track. It's a shame AMA still uses it and it's a shame this race gets so much publicity. I'm looking forward to seeing Luca on the proper road courses!

just talked to his dad...confirmed a small fracture in his left foot...20 days healing time is expected....Luca said he overdid it on tires that were not up to temp yet....and was very sorry for the mishap...but apart from that everything is ok....

i'd say if the mv's get into the 38's, they are doing REALLY REALLY well.

more realistic is probably 40's considering the rather infant state of development. but i've got my fingers crossed for the 38's.

i hope it's dry for tomorrow.
