Squadra Corse Italia's Vittorio Iannuzzo will miss this weekend's Assen round of the World Superbike Championship, due to a hand injury sustained in a Valencia race two crash that also involved Kawasaki replacement rider Simon Andrews.

"I hurt my right hand in the big crash at Valencia and I cannot even get my glove on at the moment. I will not be racing," explained the Italian.

"This year is very competitive and if I am not 100% then it is very difficult to ride. So for this reason I will stop and come back to race at Monza," he added.

Iannuzzo is yet to score a point this season.
