GP Week : Issue 120
Moto GP news >> DANI Pedrosa missed a third race by staying home from the British GP, and his factory Honda team was waiting anxiously for word on whether he would be fit for Assen in two weeks time. Meantime, the mystery deepened as to whether the Spaniard had exacerbated his injuries by crashing a Supermotard bike in a training exercise, with the team unable to confirm exactly why he was absent ... Colin Edwards suffered a worse collar-bone fracture at Catalunya, and was back a week later to claim a rostrum finish. “We don’t know if Dani will be back for Assen, but we are waiting until the last possible moment,” said team manager Livio Suppo. “If he is not fit, we are obliged to replace him. Our first option will be Hiro Aoyama – we have some options to replace him in his satellite team,” said Suppo. But he was unable to scotch rumours of further injury, though he tried his best. “If it was true, then why would he not tell us and everybody? “I honestly believe that Dani has decided that he doesn’t want to race any more until he is completely fit. If you look at the last few seasons, he has ridden injured so many times, so it is understand- able.” Hiro on standby, Pedrosa dithers Crutchlow under weather after home GP nightmare 15
