1 Mins read

After his accident in Assen, which saw him fracture two ribs and damage his shoulder, Loris Capirossi will not be racing at his home grand prix this weekend at Mugello. The veteran Pramac rider is hugely disapointed with his absence, which also sees his crew chief join the factory Ducati garage to cover Valentino Rossi‘s absent chief.

“I’m obviously very disappointed and angry.” said Loris “I was hoping I could do to get on track for this race, but the injury forced me to raise the white flag for the first time in my career for Mugello. I’m sorry for the many fans who will be at Mugello, the track to which they are emotionally closest. I have many fond memories of this track, I wanted to turn my season in this circuit. Now I will have to rest, sit still for at least two weeks and try to get back on track as soon as possible”.

Randy De Puniet is looking for redemption after his fall in Assen, and is out for a strong finish this time around. “As I said after Assen, We have to reset everything, from Mugello a new season is beginning for us. Ducati fans will help us. I don’t do predictions. My team has my confidence, I want to repay them with a good result and Mugello is the best opportunity that could happen.” he said.
