Yonny Hernandez has been ruled out of the opening 2015 MotoGP test at Sepang after dislocating his left shoulder in a dirt track training accident.

The Colombian, upgraded to Ducati GP14.2 machinery for his second full season at the satellite Pramac team, will need three weeks to recover and is therefore targeting the second Malaysian test from February 23-26.

Ducati development rider Michele Pirro will replace Hernandez at Sepang I.
