Ducati Alstare rider Carlos Checa and his team have decided that the Spanish rider will not take part in today’s sessions or tomorrow’s races at the ‘Autodromo di Monza’.


During the last week Checa has been receiving treatment for an osseous edema to the humerus of the left shoulder. This physical problem conditioned yesterday’s sessions, with the former champ reporting pain in his shoulder.


Overnight the inflammation worsened and early this morning, after consultation with both the doctors of the Clinica Mobile and Ducati Alstare’s management, it was decided that Checa should not ride and should instead continue to recuperate in order to be back in shape in two to three weeks time.


Checa will therefore not participate in the rest of the practice sessions or tomorrow’s races and will concentrate on preparing for the next round, to take place in two weeks at Donington Park.
