4 2004 proved not to be Casey's year, with a broken Clavicle (collarbone) from a practice crash at the Sachsenring circuit proved to be the downfall. He was sitting comfortably in 4th spot in the championship with a great chance of taking the crown away from other contenders, Andrea Dovizioso (later crowned champion at the Sepang circuit), Hector Barbera, and Roberto Locatelli. With his injury to the left collarbone, he couldnt race in the Sachsenring race and then the following one in Great Britain. Then a disasterous 3 rounds followed, crashing out in Brno, A coming together with Simone Corsi (for which our Casey took the blame, missing a gear) in 2005, he re- appeared in the 250cc category and immediately took it to reigning champion Dani Pedrosa, sitting in a comfortable 3rd place in the opening round in Jerez.
