2010 Catalunya Moto2 FP2 Result - Luthi Leads Gadea, Despite Broken Collarbone

The collarbone which Thomas Luthi broke at Assen - aggravating a previous motocross injury - and had plated just last Saturday evening has not hampered Thomas Luthi in the slightest. The Interwetten Moriwaki rider ended the second session of free practice for the Moto2 class at Catalunya on top of the timesheets, seemingly unaffected by his injury. Luthi ended the day just three hundredths ahead of Tenerife Pons' Sergio Gadea, and Jack&Jones' Kenny Noyes, the Hispano-American returning to the fore after radically revising setup of his Promoharris bike, and pleasing his sponsor Antonio Banderas who is also present in Barcelona. The Speed Up bike of Andrea Iannone ended the session in 4th.

As Julian Ryder said 'it's always the quiet ones you need to watch out for'
There's something about bike racers that makes them laugh in the face of fear, and a bloody mindedness that overcomes pain and injury.
