The Tech 3 Racing Moto2 Team's Xavier Simeon will not participate in next weekend's Gran Premi Aperol de Catalunya having been ruled out by injuries picked up during the recent French Grand Prix.

The Belgian rider broke bones in his left hand and foot after a heavy qualifying crash in Le Mans last Saturday and while he is recovering well from the injuries, Simeon and Tech 3 Racing boss Herve Poncharal have decided not to rush his return to competitive action.

Simeon will return to his Mistral 610 machine when practice for the British Grand Prix gets underway at Silverstone on Friday, June 15.

The Tech 3 Racing Team is currently looking for a replacement for Simeon for the Catalunya round and an announcement will be made in due course.
