    Good names there. Florian Alt I did enjoy seeing in the rookies this year with Kyle Ryde and another Brit whose name escapes me :(
    Time for a 2013 thread I think.

    Funny to see that the 2 best MotoGP riders on the paddock have the 2 last numbers of it as well :lol:
    Coincidence? :odd:

    Don't believe so

    He has a planned operation in early december time, so I think he decided to rest and not make the neck worse. But they said that the pain wasn't related to his operation, as the operation is to remove a plate, so could just be a simple pulled muscle, who knows. But doesn't sound serious, just probably needs to rest.:tup:

    He won't be testing until February anyway so plenty of recovery time.

    Successful "arm-pump" surgery for Bradl.

    “After the arm pump problem I suffered in Japan this year at Motegi GP I had my first medical check with Dr Mir two weeks ago and together with the Team we decided to have this surgery quickly. The operation turned out really well and Dr. Mir told me my arm was better than he thought, so I am really pleased we took the decision and operated. It’s weird to celebrate the birthday at the hospital but some of my technicians came to visit me and the medical staff have been very nice with me.”

    Would anyone be interested in a fantasy competition along the lines of what I run for F1 and NASCAR? I'm thinking of doing a MotoGP competition next year.
