de Puniet out of US GP

Randy de Puniet out of US MotoGP.
Randy de Puniet has withdrawn from this afternoon's US MotoGP due to injuries sustained in Saturday's qualifying session.

The Pramac Ducati rider suffered fractures to his vertebra, and pelvic injuries, but had intended to try and ride in the warm-up.

However the Frenchman was in too much pain and withdrew from the event on Sunday morning, meaning the MotoGP field will be back down to 17 riders, with the addition of wild-card Ben Bostrom.

@sharky247 Spot on. The guy has raced on factory Kwak, privateer Honda and now, worst of all, privateer Ducati. The fact he has had a podium at all is worthy of huge respect. The fact that he also seems to want to race through every injury possible (hence my tongue in cheek post above) speaks volumes of his desire. Is he in the league of Stoner, Rossi or Lorenzo? No, but apart from Pedrosa, and maybe in future Spies & Simoncelli, no one is. The guy is a tryer, 110%, and well worth his place on the grid. Sadly moving to Pramac is the kiss of death to a riders' MotoGP career. Oli
