Reports are coming in that Vale has suffered a suspected broken Tibia and Fibula in an enduro related training accident.
If these reports are confirmed, it could mean the end to The Vale's 2017 season, and what could possibly be a career ending injury.
Surgeons are set to operate on the broken leg this evening and we'll bring you more news as soon as we get it.
Nine-time world champion Valentino Rossi has suffered a broken leg in a training fall this afternoon, breaking the same leg he broke in 2010 while riding enduro with his VR46 Academy riders. The Movistar Yamaha rider is reported to have broken both tibia and fibula in the crash, and will undergo surgery tonight to have the injury repaired.
