MotoGP: Valencia - Rossi retires

Injured Italian retires due to mechanical trouble

VALENTINO ROSSI retired from today's Spanish GP at Valencia due to technical trouble with his Yamaha M1.

The Italian, riding with three broken bones in his right hand, retired with 10 laps to go. The lack of result is a double-whammy for Yamaha as it means Rossi loses second place in the championship to Dani Pedrosa and Yamaha relinquish second place in the constructor's championship to Rizla Suzuki.
