The pilot was reported to be conducting the third of a series of solo circuits. Approach and roundout were normal and the pilot intended to wheel the aircraft on. The aircraft bounced twice so the pilot applied full power and raised the nose in order to go around. The left wing stalled and the aircraft turned left rapidly. On the next touchdown the right landing gear was torn off and the propeller and fuselage pod were damaged.
