_g101988

A leaky front fork caused Dani Pedrosa to have a massive highside at Brno but for once the Spanish rider walked way without suffering serious injuries.

Pedrosa crashed early in the afternoon’s practice session – on just his second lap – after some oil leaked from his front fork as he rode through turn 13. He visited the medical centre for an x-ray where they confirmed there was no fracture but heavy bruising to the left ankle. He finished the day fourth overall in the combined times with 1’56.784 (FP1).

He said: “I had a problem with the front fork which I didn’t realise until some oil hit the rear wheel as I was leaning over to the right into turn fourteen. The bike threw me off quite violently and I took a big knock to my left foot. I went to Clinica Mobile for a check-up and they performed an x-ray on my left ankle. Thankfully they confirmed there was no break or fracture, just a heavy contusion so I will have some treatment tonight and see how the situation is in the morning.”
