De Puniet set for arm check after Misano test

De Puniet set for arm check after Misano test

Randy de Puniet will undergo tests on his right arm to further establish the effects of his Misano crash.

The necessity of gathering tyre information meant that a bruised Randy de Puniet was required to return to action in post-race testing at Misano. The Frenchman was the sole Michelin rider on track for the Monday session, completing fifty laps despite a badly bruised arm.

The LCR Honda rider returns home to undergo extra examination on his right arm, contused in his first-lap crash in Sunday´s Gran Premio Cinzano di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini, but is not believed to be a doubt for the September 14th race in Indianapolis.

`It was not easy for me today because the right arm aches a lot,´said De Puniet after the painful run.

`In any case, I did fifty laps working mainly on tyre testing. We also made some adjustments to the braking system and we tired different regulations on the front fork to get some data for the upcoming overseas races.´

`This week I will do some extra exams, including an X-ray to check my arm in order to be in good form for the Indianapolis race,´ concluded the Honda satellite rider, fourth fastest in the post-race test with a time of 1´35.972.
