Truth.

Marc has pretty much fucked himself, with lots of help from dad and Puig. Had he actually given his arm time to heal immediately after the crash, rather than repeatedly injuring it, he'd have competed at the end of the year. It's a sad lesson. From what I read, and know, he's going to have months of recovery before that join is weight bearing again, and he's basically lost pounds of muscle mass in that arm over the last several months. What a shame.

At least when Miguel Olivera kisses a Sibling it's a Step-Sibling.

I wish I had the skills to put your avatar on a broken record gif.

A new BARF emoji?

I was wrong. They just reprinted their article from a month ago. I guess Costa couldn't be bothered- either that or he did the surgery and is too busy .

Homie's got a "previous infection" in the arm...

Staying in the hospital for a bit.

Who knew getting back on the bike so soon after an injury would have repercussions? Who would have guessed?

I saw that. Man... hurts his recovery time even more.

Has to be 6 months at least I would think. Just a guess. I did not stay in a Holiday Inn Express.

Probably some combination of Dr. Mir hack job with the ti plate and too many screws and not letting the injury heal properly. At this point I would say there are better than even odds Marc never races again and announces his official retirement sometime midseason 2021. Karma's a bitch.

And Vale remains the 9 time world champion GOAT.

Infection in the bone, third surgery, bone not healing, bone graft, and the nerve concerns. Yikes.

Hoping for a full recovery. Best scenario would be that he comes back strong but the rest of the grid has advanced in the meantime, so he is less dominant but still a podium contender ever weekend.

Wow. The poor bastard. He must feel like hammered shit right now. I don't see him racing for many months, if ever. And while I should say " I told you so," it's honestly a shitty way for a guy with his skills to end his career.

Beats death, which the way he rides is how it very well may have ended if he had come along 20 years ago or more. I really hope he makes it back. 2020 turned out to be a pretty good year. I don't think it would return to utter dominance by him like before, which means the racing would be fucking riveting.

I heard the HRC/Repsol team will have a new partner for 2021...

Boston Dynamics.

Expect a greatly improved 93 back on the track. Just don't look directly into his laser eyeballs.
