Frenchman Randy de Puniet has broken his ankle while training on his motorcross bike. Riding with three-time World Champion Yves De Maria, de Puniet hit the ground while going through a turn. The injury required de Puniet to have an operation, and he now has screws in-place to hold the fracture. With only two weeks remaining in MotoGP’s little summer siesta, Randy will clearly not be 100% when MotoGP resumes at Brno on August 16th.
No word yet as to whether de Puniet was wearing a helmet, or if he had his shirt on.
