MotoGP: Andrea Iannone dislocates shoulder again

Andrea Iannone plans to race at upcoming Aragon MotoGP round despite suffering a second shoulder dislocation - surgery needed at end of season.
Factory Ducati MotoGP star Andrea Iannone has dislocated his left shoulder for the second time in 2015.

The Italian originally suffered the injury during a testing accident at Mugello in May.

The repeat dislocation then occurred after he tripped over during a training run yesterday (Wednesday). Iannone tried to protect himself with his arms, causing his shoulder to pop out.

Following a scan the shoulder was put back into place this morning. According to Ducati, no other injuries were found with the possible exception of his tendon.

Despite the injury Iannone - fourth and the leading Desmosedici rider in the world championship - will race at the upcoming Aragon round, but with surgery now planned after November's Valencia season finale.

Kudos AI to show real determination... But neglecting that operation shouldn't cause longer to heal damage.... Get on with that operation..i believe once that Ducati is sorted he's gonna be a real title contender... We have more to come from Maniac Joe for sure...
