Jorge Lorenzo took a pretty mean spill on Saturday’s MotoGp practice at Phillip Island.  Lorenzo ran into trouble on turn 8 where a wet track caused his bike to slide. After hitting the pavement he slide all the way into the gravel.  He walked away limping, but this fall caused a sprained ankle and subsequently contributed to Lorenzo’s poor performance. He was only able to pull out a 16th place finish in qualifying.
Lorenzo had this to say according to

“We were not competitive, even less competitive than yesterday. We didn’t start very well but today in general was worse. It’s not our track. Dovi is in very good shape with the bike, mentally he’s strong, he’s doing well. He crashed in FP4 so he probably lost a bit of confidence. But he’s riding really well.”
