Alzamora replaced by Garcia for Brno

Emilio Alzamora has been ruled out of the Czech GP at Brno later this month and will be replaced in the Fortuna Honda Gresini team by David García. Alzamora is continuing his recovery from an operation which he underwent last week on his forearms.

Fellow Spaniard García, currently employed as back-up rider for the Proton KR squad, was last season crowned 250cc European Champion and also rides in the Spanish Supersport series. Team Owner Fausto Gresini said: `García is an interesting rider and we want to give him the chance to show his potential in a race´.

Providing there are no further setbacks in his recovery process Alzamora should return in time for the eleventh round of the season in Portugal.
