Last time he had a big off, he broke bones in both feet and an ankle...this time its his hand.

I'm sure we'll never know but it'd be interesting to compare injuries incurred with riders wearing different gear and how they prevent damage.

Like Lorenzo, Rossi, Biaggi and many others wear Dainese D-axial boots and full metal racer boots.

Where as Pedrosa, Hayden and Spies wear Astar GP tech/GP pro Gloves and Supertech R boots.
Haga Wears the slightly lower spec GP Plus Gloves and SMX plus boots.


Serial Crasher De Puniet wears puma boots and rev'it gloves and broke I think at least one ankle last year.

Maybe all of this means nothing, but my last big crash was a 140mph "biggie" with no damage at all sustained to my Astar covered hands and feet.

Anyone got info to add??

I dont think its a big enough sample space.
The type of crash would differ way more than the relative protection of the gear.
