Bad luck for Canepa esp' as recovery can take a long time but wish Alex all the best. I know how hard he was riding the Panigale in BSB and not getting the results, hopefully he can do better on the older 1198.

Terrible news but he will have the full support from family and fans alike. One of the BSB riders had this and I understand he made a full recovery. Goes without saying godspeed Niccolo.

I'm a big fan of Canepa and his riding style, he also stayed loyal to the Ducati brand, this is sad news, as the same illness happen to Chris Walker. All the best.
