Off Season News

Northern Irish rider Jeremy McWilliams suffered multiple injuries in a crash during testing at the MotoGP circuit in the southern Spanish city of Jerez on Friday.

The 42-year-old was taken to hospital after fracturing the femur in his left leg and his collarbone and suffering serious injury to the fingers on his left hand. He had been testing his new Ilmor bike.

The official MotoGP Web site www.motogp.com said McWilliams would undergo surgery on Monday.

Spanish rider Dani Pedrosa clocked the fastest time of the day on his new Honda as riders tested out their new 800cc bikes for the next season.

Five-times MotoGP and 500cc world champion Valentino Rossi, who was fastest on the first two days of testing on his Yamaha, posted the second-quickest time.

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

You can hardly blame them. Look at the wonga they've spent over the years and still no world title. Won;t be long before ebay or yahoo start sponsering i reckon.

Yeah Ok, he didn't perform, BUT he didn't bitch and moan when they took the ride away either...... let alone say someone else kept him out.

As you can tell I'm not a huge Hodge fan
