Jorge Lorenzo, 2010 and 2012 MotoGP champion, who has endured some of the most horrific crashes in recent memory and even lost part of a finger in a crash at the 2011 Australian Grand Prix, approaches the situation with humor. "Maybe we are not so clever," Lorenzo said, drolly. "A clever man would see real risk after a big crash, and think about it more." In addition to a thick skull, Lorenzo also credits basic quirks of human biology for his impressive post-crash performances. "When you put on your leathers and get on the bike, the adrenaline helps you forget the pain and makes you stronger."
