Abraham out of British MotoGP

"The broken bones could dislocate and mean surgery will be necessary" - Karel Abraham.
Karel Abraham will not take part in this weekend's British MotoGP at Silverstone due to left hand injuries sustained in testing at Aragon.

Doctors recommended that the Cardion AB Ducati rider, who has scored points just once so far this year, should sit out round six to avoid the risk of complicating the injury and being forced to miss the forthcoming back-to-back rounds at Assen-Sachsenring-Mugello.

“Doctors highly recommended me to not race,” said Abraham. “Otherwise the broken bones could dislocate and mean surgery will be necessary. In that case my start in the next races would be endangered and we can't risk it.

“It's really bad for us to lose a race but it's certainly better than to lose the four races in July. I really hope I will be back on track after two weeks.”

Abraham's absence means there will be only eleven manufacturer riders in this weekend's race.
