Rather than risk missing out on the 2012 Superbike season, Suzuki rider John Hopkins decided to have one of his fingers amputated. Hopkins finger problems began when he crashed while practicing for the Czech Grand Prix. Although the fall didn’t look bad initially it led to six operations with the promise of more trips under the knife. (via Jalopnik)
