Yonny Hernandez Hoping To Ride At Sepang In Spite Of Dislocated Left Collarbone

Yonny Hernandez (68).
Avintia Blusens wishes both his riders will attend Sepang

Blusens Avintia MotoGP is still waiting for Yonny Hernández to fully recover to know if they can count with their two riders at the G.P. of Malaysia. Yonny who has been suffering from a dislocation of his left collarbone and a hard blow on the sole of his right foot after he crashed in the first laps of the G.P. of Motegi hopes that he will have recovered to stand up for his third position in the CRT's in the general ranking. For his part Iván Silva wants to continue to improve and work on his bike's development on a track that he is familiar with as he took a pre-season test there.

Yonny Hernández: "I hope I'll be able to participate in this G.P. because I want to carry on fighting for my ranking in the CRT's. I am aching all over now but I think I'll be able to ride because actually I don't have any fractures. I'll have to wait for Thursday and Friday's medical check on the track but I am confident the doctors' diagnosis will be positive and I'll be on Sunday's starting grid."

Iván Silva: "I very much hope I'll get a good result after I dropped out for my come back to Avintia Blusens last Sunday. We were unlucky in Japan but I was comfortable with the bike and I was scraping my way up at a good pace after I got off the track in the first bend. I trained on this track in the pre-season so I am familiar with the track which makes things easier. I was angry I could not complete the race at Motegi so I don't want it to happen in Sepang and I want to finish as well as possible."
