Repsol Honda’s Jorge Lorenzo will miss the upcoming Brno MotoGP round and test but plans to make his return to competition at Silverstone.
The Spaniard is still recovering from T6 and T8 vertebrae fractures sustained during the Assen round and it has been an uphill battle. Lorenzo will also miss the Red Bull Ring race too.
“Jorge Lorenzo and the Repsol Honda Team have agreed it is best for Lorenzo to miss both the Czech and Austrian rounds to continue his recovery and avoid any further risk of injury,” said a team statement.
Having spent the summer break working on his recovery, Lorenzo’s condition has improved but he is still in some pain and his movement on a bike remains restricted. Silverstone has been set as his new objective for returning to riding for the Repsol Honda Team.”
In his place, Stefan Bradl will again ride the RC213V in Repsol Honda Team colours. The German had been scheduled to wildcard at the Czech GP, but will now fill in for Lorenzo as he did at the Sachsenring.
