The last we saw of Karel Abraham, his condition left us wondering when he'd ride a motorcycle again. Abraham crashed at Indy and tore muscles in his shoulder, forcing him to sit out the Indy MotoGP race last weekend.
On Monday, we followed Abraham through the security line at the Indy airport, and again saw him later walking through the terminal.
Inside the airport Abraham's face was ashen white, and he moved like a boxer who'd lost a long bout fight with a tough opponent. He grimaced every time he had to move his arm--in a sling--or shoulder.
The Czech rider, who is also a lawyer, has had a slightly nightmarish 2013 season, this after actually riding a customer Ducati better than Valentino Rossi did his factory Ducati early last season. Abraham is linked with a customer RC213 for 2014.
He's young and clearly very tough. Currently the word is Abraham will try to ride this weekend at his home track of Brno.
