Seems like the details are a little sketchy but Dirt Bike Rider is saying that Herlings may have more injuries than just his shoulder. What do you reckon? True or horsesh@t? A 10th world title for Cairoli is looking more and more possible...

It's certainly possible when you think about the mechanics of breaking a collar bone. Maybe he hit hard on the ground catching his elbow against his ribs. I did that 6 months ago. I didn't break ribs but was sore as hell and still feel it sometimes laying on that side.

I think it's very likely he sustained more than their camp is revealing. Per JT$, his peoples are being tight lipped about the situation.

I don’t think herlings will let some broken ribs keep him from racing. He is a TOUGH guy and craves this title. The collarbone and any should muscle injuries will be what would keep him out

I'm guessing you never broke ribs before, it would take some really good drugs to ride true that pain.

What were his results like coming back from the broken collarbone in 250s when he was trying to save the title?

Why do they do that, it will all become apparent when he starts practice- qualifying, let alone when he's actually racing.
I'm hoping the championship goes down to the last Moto of the last race.

I did that exact same thing about 2-1/2 years ago as well. High speed sweeper , and the rear end of my bike spun up and passed me , and ended up almost doing a full split. I had to let go of the bars so I didn't get ripped in half. Went down with my elbow tucked in and broke a rib and bruised my liver. Had some internal swelling going on as well......didn't feel good for a few weeks.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Its all about the mental edge. Downplay injury severity and hope you come good on the day. If you say everything completely honestly it starts to open up doubt in your mind.

Then when it goes to shit you can say “It’s much worse than anyone knows”.

I know it hurts with every breath, broken ribs are among the most painful and nagging injuries. I’m also aware that Jeffery is an extremely strong and determined person who has been working his whole life for this.

On the other hand jordy Nelson played multiple games for the packers last year with broken ribs. I’d rather ride Moto than play football with that injury

Sorry, I wasn't having a pop at you, just agreeing with serious drugs needed to get through the pain.
Each time I've done a rib or two I soon learnt how not to sneeze.

Broken ribs only means he will win by 10 seconds and lap only to 5th place.

he would say if it was true, he has no reason to hide injuries

Yeah, I believe someone copy pasted it out of an article from an online source in another country.

Ask from Peick, he didn't care. JH raced with a broken femur,. Broken ribs are like whooping cough for this guysmile

first messages online reported possible broken ribs , but he got some bruised ribs like the KTM press relase stated

the funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it

Herlings drive and pain threshold are beyond normal human limits, he even rides with blisters cool
