Rossi taken to hospital after crash

Valentino Rossi has become the latest addition to the MotoGP injury list, having been involved in a crash early on in the first practice session for the A-Style TT Assen. The reigning World Champion immediately went to the Clinica Mobile, sitting out the rest of the 90 minute first contact with the Assen Circuit. At 11.15am local time the Italian was taken to the Assen Hospital, where he was diagnosed with chest contusions, hairline fractures to the right hand and left ankle and a haematoma on his right elbow.

Rossi will undergo a CATSCAN at the Dutch hospital, and if all is ok with his thorax area he will return for today's second session. If not, he may rest until tomorrow.
