Andrea Iannone out of US MotoGP

Andrea Iannone, one of three riders injured during the German MotoGP event, will also miss this weekend's US round.

The Pramac Ducati rookie dislocated his right shoulder in a Saturday fall and, according to ANSA, will not be fit for what should have been his Laguna Seca debut.

No replacement has yet been announced and Alex de Angelis, called up in place of the long-injured Ben Spies, could thus be Pramac's only representative at round nine.

Title contenders Dani Pedrosa and Jorge Lorenzo, who also missed the Sachsenring race, are yet to officially confirm their US GP plans.

Iannone now has until Indianapolis on August 16-18 to recover.

It would take a desperate, desperate man to hop on that thing more than likely a you'll be embarassed by an ART CRT. Spies is looking alot smarter to me as this season goes on my guess is he would have done some irreversable damage to his already injured shoulder cause at this rate it'll be a miracle if any Ducati walks away from a weekend without crashing.
