I don't understand how he managed to win the championship with a shoulder like that. It's to his credit that won, as his injury was very complicated. The head of the humerus had popped out in all directions. So we did two things. First open surgery, to stabilise the anterior shoulder and then keyhole surgery, to repair all the ligaments in the left arm. It was a very complex surgery, more so than we expected. Usually the situation is not 100% resolved, but we immediately carried out a test to see shoulder stability, moving it at various points, and there were no problems, it is firmly in place. This is positive after the work done.

MM93 baffles modern medicine. Why is anyone still surprised? I hope we get another alien like him soon. Nobody is on his planet.

I'm glad that shoulder complication isn't looking like it's going to end his career. Would've been a shame.

I wouldn't be putting any money on this just yet. Multiple ligament repair is no small matter.

I expect him to return to top form, but I would not be surprised at all if this did end his career.

MM93 will be a hand full to deal with next year I am sure.

Who will challenge him will be the interesting part.

Mat Miles interview with Ducati Sporting Director Pablo Ciabatti posted yesterday at CycleWorld.com

They cover a lot of ground (MotoGP, WSBK, Lorenzo, Stoner) in a short interview so there isn't much depth, still a good read.

".....He was very fast but he didn't have a riding style.
He had lots of lean angle, so the initiative came a bit
from his team that he'd get a few tips from professionals.....

.....On the first day I've was only trying to make him
go a bit slower. I had to stop him, he's not afraid at all
and he tried to take corners as fast as with his car.....

There's Californian Joe Roberts in Moto2. He switched to what should be a better team for 2019 but I understand they are having funding issues.
