MotoGP: Assen GP over for Lorenzo: fractured vertebra


Jorge Lorenzo will not be back on his bike this weekend in Assen. The tests he underwent in the hospital showed a fractured 6th dorsal vertebra, so he will not be able to ride his Honda.

The Mallorcan rider is still at the hospital in Assen, and there is no further information on his injury or possible recovery times.

Doctor Zasa spoke to Sky explaining the seriousness of the accident but specifying that there do not seem to be excessive consequences for Lorenzo.

"At the moment, there are no mobility problems for Jorge, who can easily moves all his limbs. It seems like the fracture didn't create neurological problems. What they still need to understand are the actual recovery times, and it's a good thing that, at this stage of the championship, there's an almost three-week-long summer break. We'll know the actual recovery times only after receiving all the test results."
