Capirossi undergoing forearm treatment after practice crash

Capirossi undergoing forearm treatment after practice crash

Returning rider Loris Capirossi suffered another injury in a Thursday afternoon crash at Assen.

Rizla Suzuki rider Loris Capirossi, who missed the previous MotoGP round at Donington Park through injury, is currently being being treated for a deep cut suffered in a spectacular Thursday crash in Assen.

The Italian picked up a deep laceration to his right forearm, with flesh put back in place and the wound stitched up by the Clinica Mobile, but his hand on the same side -a breakage to which caused his absence from last week´s action- sustained no further damage in the huge highside.

Should Capirossi be unable to ride tomorrow, Donington replacement Ben Spies is in Assen and could perhaps make a second MotoGP appearance.
