Tech3 rookie Bradley Smith always tries hard to keep his fans as up to date and included as possible, though his recent Twitter post revealing the full extent of the damage to his finger from his Mugello crash may have proven too graphic for some.
Bearing in mind the Oxfordshire rider RACED with this injury, due to be operated on today (Monday) in Italy, the pictures are fairly shocking, even for those seasoned to such material through following motorcycle racing.
He received support from many other riders in the paddock including current World Champion Jorge Lorenzo who used his preferred social media platform Twitter to sent the following well wishes to the Briton:
“@BradleySmith38 Great race mate. Very brave and tough. Altough try to avoid crashing in the future, this bikes don’t joke… Good recovery.”
