Default Rossi out for four races

Just found out Rossi had a huge highside in practice and broke his leg. He is supposedly out for at least four races. Wow...

This is a rare thing for Rossi. Up until now he was supposedly working on a 260+ consecutive race record. Had not missed a race since 1996 if I heard it right.

You heard right. He'd never been in a serious crash before.

At least that gives a Spaniard (Lorenzo or Pedrosa) a chance to become world champion this year.

Never knew Moto GP as well as F1, and since I never knew who was who and what was what, I stopped watching it a year or two ago. Definitely knew who Rossi was. What're the specs on the current bikes? Gotta find a video of this crash.

Well all the videos suck so here's some decent pictures.

Looks like he got his leg tucked under himself and it must of snapped. Ouch.

I'm almost sure the current bikes are 800cc. That was a really nasty highside. I'm a big Spies fan since I kinda hung out with him before all his recent fame.

Highsides suck. I had one racing two years ago and if it never happens again it will be too soon. I fared much better than Rossi though.

Yes 800cc. They are going through the same thing as F1. Less displacement to slow them down bui they keep going faster anyway. A few years ago the Ducati 1000cc was making 250bhp.
