Iannone: “A sudden movement caused my shoulder to pop out"

Iannone: “A sudden movement caused my shoulder to pop out'

Iannone fighting to be fit for the Gran Premio Movistar de Aragon after dislocating his shoulder yet again.

During a training run, Andrea Iannone tripped and fell. As he attempted to protect himself, he put his arms out which resulted in his shoulder dislocating yet again. Ahead of the Mugello round earlier in the year, Iannone dislocated the same shoulder during a private Ducati test, the injury proved not to be debilitating but did greatly restrict his movement on the bike. Despite undergoing tecar treatment daily, the Ducati Team rider will not be fully fit for Aragon.

At Mugello earlier in the year Iannone managed an incredible pole and second place finish even with his injured shoulder, no doubt a performance he’d be more than pleased with in Aragon. The Spanish circuit saw Iannone qualify in third last year before unfortunately crashing out. In 2010 the Italian won the Moto2™ race after a classically heated battle. With many fast changes of direction, Aragon will be more physically demanding than Mugello and Iannone will continue treatment on his shoulder throughout the weekend.

Andrea Iannone: “Unfortunately last week I tripped over while I was out training: in the fall, I put my arms out to protect myself, but a sudden movement caused my shoulder to pop out again. I have been undergoing a couple of hours of tecar treatment a day, but it will be a tough weekend for me, because the track has many direction changes, ups and downs and a lot of hard braking. I clearly won’t be 100% on form, but at least I’ll be there.”
