    bad luck for Rossi in Assen

    "Valentino Rossi's initial acquaintance with the new Assen layout lasted just six laps before he high-sided from his M1 through the fast left hander that leads into the final hairpin - sending the seven-times world champion tumbling viciously through the gravel trap.

    " 'I'm okay and I would like everyone to relax about it, even if it's been quite hard for me to ride!' said Rossi, who cancelled his normal afternoon chat with journalists. 'I have a little fracture on my left foot and also a small fracture on my right wrist, so when I give gas and brake it's really hard. I don't have much power or feeling. Plus I got a big bruise on my thorax and I couldn't breathe well for a long time. I had all the examinations necessary to check if everything was okay and with some painkillers I was able to ride this afternoon.'

    "Valentino Rossi wasn't the only rider injured during first free practice at Assen, with Toni Elias suffering a fracture of his left shoulder - forcing the young Spaniard to withdraw from the Dutch TT weekend."
