Loris Capirossi weds amidst speculation surrounding his MotoGP future

The summer break has taken on a special significance for Loris Capirossi. The Italian rider is recovering well from the wrist injury which kept him out of action at Donington and Sachsenring and he is currently in his home town of Borgo Rivola, near Bologna, where he will this weekend marry his long term girlfriend Ingrid Tence. The pair officially tied the knot at a civil service in Monte Carlo at the end of last month, but are looking forward to blessing their marriage at a religious ceremony to be attended by around thirty guests.

Meanwhile specualtion continues to surround a different kind of commitment for the MotoGP star, who is currently considering his options for the 2003 season after receiving offers from Ducati, Kawasaki, Aprilia and his current West Honda Pons team. `I am very disappointed with Honda because they have only offered a single RC211V four stroke machine to our team and it seems like we are at the bottom of their list of priorities´, explained Capirossi. `First of all I need to speak Sito Pons, which I am sure will happen at Brno, and then I will be able to make a decision. I will make an announcement at Brno or just afterwards – before the Portugal GP´.

`Capirex´ is also making a daily trip to see Dr. Costa at his clinic in Imola as he continues the painful recovery from a double break in his right wrist. `In Monte Carlo they removed the scotchcast and I have been wearing a lighter protection over the past few days. I am now doing some rehabilition excercises and undergoing laser treatment. For sure in Brno I will not be fully fit but I should be around 80 or 90%´.
