Lorenzo crashes at Assen Free Practice

On Thursday, June 27th, in what can only be good news for Marquez and Pedrosa, Jorge Lorenzo has crashed out of free practice at a very wet Assen track with what appears to be a broken collarbone.

He apparently hit standing water on the track (so much for the inspection) and highsided at the Hoge Heige, landing heavily on his left shoulder.

He was taken to the Assen medical center and will likely leave for surgery in Barcelona later today.

No word on how long he will be out, but it's welcome news for Marquez and Pedrosa. Up until that point, Lorenzo was fastest, but an enforced period on the sidelines will allow Marquez to catch up to the man currently in second. More worryingly for Lorenzo, it could see Pedrosa's lead become unassailable. Is it finally Pedrosa's year?
