Moto2: Bryan Staring will replace Bo Bendsneyder in Phillip Island

Following his unfortunate accident on the last lap of the Japanese Grand Prix last Sunday, Bo Bendsneyder is still in Okubo Hospital Tokyo, where he gets the best possible treatment to his broken left tibia in order to return home within a short time to be able to recover and come back to competition soon.

For the Australian Grand Prix, the French squad was able to engage Bryan Staring to take over the Mistral 610 from the Dutch rookie. The Australian arrives with a wealth of experience from riding 125cc World Championship, MotoGP, World Supersport, World Superbike and the FIM Superstock 1000 Championship. Currently, the 31-year old is competing in the Australian Superbike series and eager to try a Moto2 machine for the first time.
Bryan Staring  said: “I’m really excited to come and ride Moto2, the first time for me ever in this category. Actually, it’s such an honour to be able to race at the Australian Grand Prix, which is my home GP. A massive thank you to Hervé Poncharal for giving me the opportunity on this special bike and also to Kawasaki Australia for allowing me to do this event. I have really no expectations, but a lot of anticipation. I’m looking forward to go out on the bike and enjoying the weekend!
