Sad to see he might be out of this thing already. The MXGP threads are really becoming unbearable. Amazingly the same guys only show up when it's GP race time and don't have anything but shit to contribute when they do show up.

Looking at that picture, he may not have an injury. They said injured on the broadcast when he didn't attempt to get back on his bike. Maybe he was going to try, but saw the bars broken and walked away. The limp may be a normal thing for him.

Looks like he slid it out quite nicely. Don't suspect he's injured.

Did you not see the way his left knee bent sideways as he flipped back onto his feet? Looked pretty worrying to me.

Yup. Just my opinion that he will be fine come a week from now.

It's become very hard to watch. He may as well enjoy his tour of Europe, for what ever reason, it just hasn't worked out for him. It's really making me start to question the speed of the rest of our riders, between him and the last 3 MXDN results..... Sucks

Bring them over here to the USA and you will see the same thing happen to them. Way to many variables. RV has not ridden the outdoors for a couple Years. Who is to say he would have done any better here in the states. Who is to say RV still won't win some races. Ride it out and see what happens.

Watched it again and I`m 100% sure his knee is fine.

I really hope you're right! It would suck balls if he has to miss even one GP let alone the rest of the season.

I think his knee did that cause he unlocked his hips grin

He was too far back on a bike and missed brake pedal. Fuck, fuck, fuck...

his right knee is the issue .from his body language.

RV's speed isn't far off, but he needs to have that speed with more control IMO. He can't ride with the same style that he did on fast loamy tracks in the states, or it will bite him like it did today.

Qatar aside I think RV is doing fine. He was in the middle of the leading pack of riders in both motos and I genuinely felt this would be a circuit that he would struggle to adapt to. He was unlucky with the loop-out but he was hardly traling around in 20th place!

I think he'll do well at Valkenswaard next week (assuming he's not injured), Spain might be tricky one but then it's Matterly Basin where I would put money on him going 1-1.

I dont really understand this defeatist mentality of some people. I can only assume it's down to the realisation that it isn't turning out to be the annihilation that they'd predicted. What we have is a truly exciting series with lots of riders on a similar level and anything can happen. This is what racing should be about, not the same rider dominating every week.

Those Kawis are obviously putting out 75 or more horsepower. We have now seen two pros "loop out", first Millsaps, now Poto. And Pros just don't loop out.

I agree, but the problem is that AC won't see him as a threat point wise anymore and will see no need to engage in any battles unless he also has some bad luck, which has happened before , 2 Dnfs in one grand Prix!

The real tracks in Europe are monsters and will bite the inexperienced riders that haven't put in the track time on them. I hope RV shows up healthy next week and can continue, his presence has elevated the GP's to their rightful level in the AMA audience market. Wide open manic riding doesn't end well on the GP tracks and that is what RV is adjusting to.It is a long grueling season and I do think that RV will be on many podiums if he continues. I mentioned earlier that when the Circus returned to the real tracks being 27 points down was a major disadvantage to overcome for anyone and a top 10 finish in the Championship would be a very creditable achievement for RV and that would be worthy of the respect that he deserves for attempting this fantastic endeavor. Every time he lines up at a GP gate he is showing his superiority and personal courage that has set him apart from his former AMA competitors.It is really a shame that so many American RV fans have disappeared from the sites during his period of adjusting, RV should have the same rabid support during his struggle to adapt no matter what his overall outcomes are.It is very disappointing.
