Video: Jorge Lorenzo takes a nasty spill at the Moto GP in Germany

Just a few weeks ago he required surgery on an injury sustained in Assen, and now he's eating tarmac again today at practice

Jorge Lorenzo has been having a bit of bad luck with injuries lately, and after this spectacular fall, he'll be thanking his lucky stars that he's not injured himself again.

The driver was taken to the on site medical centre to be given the once over after this, but he seems to be alright. Still, it's a very nasty looking spill, so he'll be wary of the 11th corner when he comes to it on race day we imagine.

The quality of the video isn't the best, but you can still see the impact of the fall thanks to the super slow motion. That one is going to sting later...
