Corsi to miss flyaway triple header

Corsi to miss flyaway triple header

NGM Forward Racing’s Simone Corsi, who was involved in an accident at Silverstone at the end of August, will not return to competition before Valencia.

Corsi underwent surgery to fix the displaced and open fracture of his left ulna and to repair the tendons of the wrist the day after the British Grand Prix, following his Sunday crash.

The rider has started rehabilitation and the initial feedback on the mobility of the hand is positive. At the beginning of this week the plaster cast that was immobilising the left hand was replaced by a splint, but Corsi’s injured tendons will require a longer rehabilitation.

For this reason Corsi will not race at the forthcoming Japan, Australia and Malaysia rounds.

In agreement with the NGM Forward Racing team, the Italian rider prefers to focus on recovering completely from the injuries, in order to arrive at the end of season Grand Prix in Valencia in the best possible shape and to prepare for the 2015 season.

Corsi will continue to be replaced by the 21 year-old French rider Florian Marino, who was on board the Kalex in Misano and is currently second in the Supersport World Championship.
