MotoGP: Loris Capirossi out of British GP

Italian veteran Loris Capirossi is definitely out of the British GP at Donington Park on June 22. The factory Suzuki rider suffered a badly broken right hand in yesterday's Catalunya GP after Gresini Honda rider Alex de Angelis wiped him out on lap 11. The triple world champion is also a major doubt for the Dutch GP in Assen the weekend after...

Replacement

I can't believe that Suzuki aren't taking this opportunity to give Spies an extended test. Surely if it doesn't clash with AMA (which he's walking away with again) this would be the perfect time to assess his MotoGP potential properly with 4 races. I'm not a big Spies fans, sure he has talent but I don't think he's ready for MotoGP but if there is a spare seat going why not give him a chance.

Give it to a Brit!!!

Why Spies? Why not Tom Sykes? He's a Brit, its the British GP, he rides a Rizla Suzuki so no clash with sponsors, and Denning owns the team he rides for! And I'm sure he's ridden the GSVR at a winter test and did pretty well. Does the fact that they have ignored Spies for the ride confirm that he wont be in MotoGP with Suzuki next year?

yes

Spies won't come to the GP because he won't want a pay cut and I don't think he'll hack it with the worlds best. I agree with Chappy give it to a brit!
