David Checa to sub for Toni Elias

David Checa will be back on the MotoGP grid this weekend at Assen with the Fortuna Yamaha team, as Toni Elias still hasn't recovered from his left wrist injury. Elias had suffered a crash in mid-May at le Mans and sustained various fractures. He was advised not to race in Holland in order to fully recover and now hopes to be fit for the US Red Bull GP.

Checa will make his third consecutive MotoGP appearance. The Spaniard made his debut earlier this month at Mugello and scored his first World Championship points in the premier class just a week later, by taking 13th at his home round at Catalunya.
