Koyama out, Kuzahara in

Japanese rider Tomoyoshi Koyama is currently in his homeland recovering from a wrist injury suffered last Sunday in Catalunya, and is out of this weekend's A-Style TT Assen.

23 year old rider Hiroaki Kuzuhara, who competes in the Italian Championship and has already featured as a wild card at Mugello, will take Koyama's place in the Malaguti Ajo Corse team.

Nicola Casadei, manager of the team, declared that Kuzuhara "has shown his quality. The 20th place at Mugello and his performances in the Italian Championship show that he is a very good rider."

Kuzuhara's team boss Andrea Grillini was delighted to let his rider compete in the championship.

"It is an unbeatable experience for him, a chance to gain valuable experience and provide recognition for our team."
