Cool Austrian GP...

Obviously no race spoliers, but how the hell does Marquez dislocate his shoulder in FP3, then qualify in 5th on the same day, and race the next day getting the result he did?

That is superhuman, right up there with Lorenzo doing something similar only woth breaking his collarbone instead of dislocating his shoulder.

Having had both injuries, I will say that a dislocated shoulder is a lot more painful than a broken collarbone, which makes it even crazier.

Damn! Has he dislocated his shoulder before? I dislocated my shoulder wrestling back in the day and had multiple dislocations in the same shoulder the following years when olympic lifting. Once you've dislocated it once, it becomes easier to do and is also relatively less painful.

So if he has a history of them, it's not fun, but not that big of a deal either. If this was the first FULL dislocation of that joint... Dude is a fucking trooper

Collar bones are no joke too

Re: Austrian GP...

Being someone who has had two busted collar bones at the same time, I concur - they suck ass. There's no cast for that... you just have to baby them until the two halves eventually stick together and start healing.

Lorenzo couldn't have 'broken' it - a fracture maybe. If it was broken, like in half (as mine were), that arm wasn't attached to his skeleton and there's no way you could ride like that?

Dislocated shoulder - I've heard that's no picnic. Riding like that? Wow.

I believe he broke his collar bone and then had almost immediate surgery and made it back for qualifying** the next day

Edit: He made it back to race not qualifying

Re: Austrian GP...

Correct. Lorenzo broke his collarbone in half, the medivac'd him to the hospital, they plated it, and he raced the next day.

Fuck, and you know he wasn't on any type of pain management. Anti-flammitories at the most...

I stand corrected.

Racing a day after crashing & busting himself up, being cut-open, having HW installed and stitched back up?

Holy shit

Re: Austrian GP...

The treatment these guys get is not average . Still it's impressive. Iannone had injured ribs iirc .
