Debon to test on despite injury

Alex Debon intends to take part in the first official Moto2 test, at Valencia on March 1-3, despite fracturing his left collarbone in an accident at last week's Catalunya test.

The Motor Sport 69 rider, who will campaign an FTR Moto M210 machine, was one of a number of riders to fall on the slippery surface.

After undergoing surgery to have a titanium plate inserted, the Spaniard intends to get back on track for the debut of the Honda-built Moto2 engine.

“Alex was really unlucky in the crash last week,” said FTR director Steve Bones. “There was plenty of crashes as the new teams and riders all started work on their respective Moto2 projects and only one or two riders were unfortunate enough to pick up injuries.”

Despite the setback, Bones is confident that the 250GP race winner will be in a position to fight for victory in the first ever Moto2 race, at Qatar on April 11.

“We're really confident in Alex and the technical team he has around him,” continued Bones. “Hopefully the Valencia test next week will give us further feedback and we can ensure Alex is in the best possible position to challenge for victory in the opening round.”
