Bradley Smith will not be able to take part in the first round of the MotoE World Cup at Jerez. The WithU team rider, in fact, was involved in a terrible accident about ten days ago during the start of the Le Mans 24 Hours in which he fractured a vertebra. The doctors have judged that his recovery from the injury is not yet complete and have not given him the green light to ride his Energica.

The Briton will now have to wait for the French GP to start the electric championship and in Spain he will be replaced by Lukas Tulovic.

“Unfortunately, yesterday I got the frustrating news that I’m being declared unfit for Jerez – explained Smith – My medical team has done an amazing job getting me ready during the last 10 days and honestly, I feel ready to compete and start the season. But I must respect the MotoGP medical teams’ final decision and let my fracture heal a few more days and be ready for Le Mans.”
