Rossi Mugello crash pics

Fourteen images of Rossi's exit from Mugello

VALENTINO ROSSI put more than a serious dent in his chances of retaining the MotoGP world title when the Italian crashed out of Mugello Free Practice 2, breaking his shin bone in the process.

See the Valentino Rossi Mugello crash video.

The crash and resulting furore, scene here in a sequence of 14 images, makes tough viewing for any Rossi fan.

The nine-time champion looks pale and in agony as medics attend to him trackside.

In true Evel Knievel style, Rossi still managed to wave to fans as he was airlifted from Mugello.

Enjoy (if that's the right word) the images while you can; even though we took them from a video from Youtube, we're expecting a phonecall from MotoGP tightwads Dorna, sooner or later.


"Hello - ah, Mr Ezpeleta. The pictures? Yes, right away, sir."
