This is a pic from the saschsenring GP. My 2nd fav motoGP rider, Shinya Nakano, unfortunately broke a bone in his hand on friday pre-qualification warmup. but despite the broken bone, he still tried quialifying AND magaged to get 16th position out of 21 i think. But didnt do the race because he said the pain was too bad. crazy rider, really cool guy :)
