Marco crashed in practice and broke his femur and fibula.....had to be airlifted out of the raceway. Nicky crashed after only 7 laps but is ok.....Loris on the Ducati on top so far...url has more info:

That blows. Melandri is a good rider. Too bad we won't get to see him in the premier class for a bit. The femur is the hardest bone to break in the body. He'll definitely be out of circulation for a bit.

and the ankle fracture was an open fracture.....eeeeeew....he also broke his nose.....oh well, he's too damn pretty anyways :)

I like him too...always a soft spot for ex-Priller racers!

They're all ex-priller racers. Almost.
