Argentina MotoGP: Iannone 'Rear wheel locked at 230kph'

Andrea Iannone confirms technical problem caused FP2 fall at Agentina MotoGP
Andrea Iannone was the victim of an nasty accident during Friday's second practice session for the MotoGP of Argentina.

The Pramac Ducati rider was pitched down the asphalt when the rear wheel of his Desmosedici appeared to lock at the end of the 1km back straight.

“In second practice I had a technical problem with the bike and I had a bad crash on the straight, before the braking area. My rear wheel locked at 230kph. I have a bit of a headache but for the crash I had I could have gotten hurt much more.”

The Italian, who battled for a rostrum last time in Austin, returned to claim tenth place, 2.6s from Marc Marquez but less than a second from the leading Ducati of Andrea Dovizioso.
