Crocked 250GP star Eugene Laverty is putting this weekend's Indy MotoGP race behind him and looking forward to his second outing on the works Yamaha World Supersport bike this weekend at Vallelunga.

The Irishman broke the fifth metatarsal in his left foot after a highside in second qualifying which ruled him out of yesterday's race. However, torrential rain caused the grand prix to be cancelled.

“It was a great feeling to finish 4th in the first qualifying practice but I was brought back down to earth with a bump on Saturday. I lost the rear on the exit of the 180 degree right and damaged both my feet in the crash," said the Blusens Aprilia rider.
"I got off lucky today with the 250 race being can­celled so I didn’t miss out on any points.  I guess you could say that I picked a good weekend to get in­jured!
"Right now I’m thinking about trying to prepare for my second World Supersport outing at Vallelunga next weekend.  I’m going to give it a shot as it’s an important race for me if I want to move there next season.  Yamaha have given me a great opportunity so if I’m able I will ride.  It’s vital that I do all I can to recover in the next few days and the long flight home doesn’t help matters but it is what it is.  I’ll see how my feet fair on Thursday.”
