Valentino Rossi, the 38-year-old Italian MotoGP racer (as if he needs any introduction), has broken his leg during motocross training. He’s had surgery and is doing well, according to reports. The larger story here is the impact on this year’s championship. Before Rossi’s potentially, season-ending injury, there was a serious four-way battle going on between Dovizioso, Marquez, Vinales, and Rossi. now, Marc Marquez is the most likely beneficiary and could be on track for another championship.
