Kenny Roberts to miss Sachsenring this weekend

American rider Kenny Roberts will not take part in the Cinzano Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland, as he decided to undergo surgery to sort out an arm injury earlier than planned. The Suzuki rider suffers from right arm pump and having orginally planned the operation for next week, a deterioration of his condition over the last two races meant he had to change his plans and bring the operation forward.

´I´ve had problems ever since we started riding the four-stroke,´ explained Roberts. `The bike is heavier and takes more muscling around. I've been suffering from fatigue and pumping up, and I wanted to undergo surgery after the German round, but I changed my mind and decided to bring it forward as the situation has been deteriorating´. Roberts will be replaced by Yukio Kagayama, who rides the GSV-R in the All Japan Series.
