Rodriguez to take a rest

It has been announced that Angel Rodriguez has been relieved of his duties with the Team Master-Aspar for the foreseeable future. Rodriguez has suffered a disappointing season so far and, after some physical problems were also detected in a recent medical, a mutual agreement has been reached, with the rider´s position set to be reconsidered at the end of the season.

`We would like to wish Angel Rodriguez a swift recovery in the hope that he can return very soon to the process of evolution which can be expected by a rider of his quality,´ announced a team official. `The team are not considering finding a replacement for Rodriguez for the remainder of the season.´

After a promising rookie season in 2001 which often saw him fighting in the lead group, `Rodri´ has suffered a torrid season this time around and has only managed to complete three out of nine races. His best finish came in the first race of the season at Suzuka, where he took seventh place.
