A Monday medical check following his home San Marino round has revealed that right wrist pain suffered by Alex de Angelis was caused by a fracture to the scaphoid bone.

Despite the injury, de Angelis finished the Misano race in 14th place. The Forward Yamaha rider will now undergo daily magnetic and laser in order to prepare for next weekend's Aragon Grand Prix.

De Angelis joins Mike de Meglio on the injury list, the Frenchman undergoing surgery for fractures to his left hand after falling in the Misano race.
