MotoGP Valencia: Dixon ruled out with wrist fracture

Britain’s Jake Dixon will miss this weekend’s Moto2 European GP after fracturing his right wrist in a turn four fall during Friday’s FP2.

Having missed out of the morning’s opening free practice session at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo due to a stomach complaint, Dixon was immediately up to speed as FP2 began, sitting second aboard his Petronas Sprinta in the opening minutes - with a fastest time of 1’39.916 - and narrowly behind fellow Brit Sam Lowes.

Unfortunately the Valencia adventure came to an abrupt and early end after a turn four highside left the 24-year-old with a fractured right wrist. Dixon will now fly to England tomorrow for further medical checks and x-rays to understand the extent of his injuries.


“I sat out of FP1 because of my stomach ache and then we didn’t start FP2 too badly.

“I had a good first few laps, found my way and felt really comfortable with the bike. I was finding my rhythm, but made a small error and ran a little wide in Turn 4. The bike then came round, spat me over the top and I landed on my arm.

“Unfortunately I have fractured my wrist, so now I will go home and have some further checks to assess it further. Then it will be a case of resting and getting back to 100% fitness again.”
