Pirro replaces Petrucci for Valencia test

Regular Octo Pramac Yakhnich returns to Italy early

Octo Pramac Yakhnich have announced that regular rider Danilo Petrucci has returned to Italy for family reasons, and will therefore not be riding in the first of the pre-season tests for 2017.

Petrucci will be replaced in testing by Ducati test rider Michele Pirro, who also replaced his compatriot earlier in the season when 'Petrux' was suffering with injury.
