Guintoli ruled out of Donington World Superbike round

Pata Yamaha’s Sylvain Guintoli has ruled himself out of action for next weekend’s Donington Park World Superbike round as his recovery from injuries sustained at Imola is not going as quickly as he would like.

The Frenchman fractured his leg after being spat off his R1 at Aqua Minerale and underwent surgery to have the bone screwed back together but he will not make his ‘home round’ and Misano is now the target.

“Unfortunately the recovery is going to take me a little longer than I had originally hoped but the aim is to be fit in time for Misano. It was such a massive crash that the landing took more out of me than first realised but it’s all on the mend now. They have inserted some screws into my ankle - which is a shame because I have been metal free for quite a while - but the surgery was completely successful and it’s just about recovery time and working to get myself back to 100 per cent fitness again,” he said.


Team-mate Alex Lowes is also on the sick list with a broken collarbone after a crash at Sepang last weekend, and he may not make Donington either.
