Kallio out of USGP

That crash looked nasty immediately when he got up and was holding his finger - I was thinking "Oh, Oh, another Bayliss type finger grinding" - seems I wasn't far wrong.

Following his accident at the conclusion of Saturday’s Alice TT Assen Pramac Racing rider Mika Kallio will miss the next MotoGP round at Laguna Seca.

Damage to one of the fingers on his left hand means the Finnish rider is unable to ride his Ducati Desmosedici GP9 Sat this weekend at the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix and the MotoGP rookie will therefore have to wait a while longer to make his Laguna debut.

The ‘ring finger’ of his left hand was cut down to the bone in the crash meaning Kallio has lost the nail on that finger for good, though fortunately the nervous system in the finger has not been damaged. A bandage has been placed on the finger and it is being disinfected daily.

After the Sachsenring and Donington rounds Kallio will probably require a skin graft to permanently close the wound. He is expected to compete at those two European rounds with an imitation skin protection on the injured finger.

That was a real shame as he rode a very good race and was in for a really good finish.

I hate to see talented riders sit out due to injury. I think he would have had a difficult time at Laguna though. Having never been there before. Hopefully he'll be back for the next race.
