Spies Withdraws From Italian GP At Mugello To Complete Physical Recovery

FIM MotoGP World Championship: Ignite Pramac Ducati rider Ben Spies.
Unfortunately yesterday’s free practice sessions highlighted the muscular problems still afflicting Ben Spies.

The intense rehabilitation activities which the Texan has undergone in the last 4 weeks have brought about a clear improvement but it still not sufficient for Spies to demonstrate his true potential on the track.

After an analysis of the situation, the Pramac Racing Team, Ducati Corse and the rider have taken the mutual decision to continue rehabilitation and physiotherapy and to interrupt all track activities to allow Ben to complete his total physical recovery.

In the next few days Ben Spies will undergo further medical checks in order to have a clearer appraisal of the situation and evaluate the treatment to be followed for full recovery.
