Lorenzo parties hard, gets burned

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

MotoGP champion Jorge Lorenzo suffered second degree burns to his left leg while celebrating his recently won title in Mallorca last week.

The three-time MotoGP champ was reportedly injured while preparing to go on a celebratory ride. A radiator pipe is said to have come loose, spraying the Spaniard’s leg with boiling fluid. 

The injury has put a stop to Lorenzo’s plans of participating in the upcoming Race of Champions in London, England, an annual event that pits racing personalities head-to-head in identical four-wheel machinery.

“I’m really sad that I cannot go to the Race of Champions this year,” Lorenzo said. “I really hoped [the injury] would heal by now but due to potential complications from sweating inside the overalls, the doctors have forbidden me to do it.” 

Six-time Olympic cycling gold medalist Sir Chris Hoy will replace Lorenzo at the event.
