Brno MotoGP test: Moto2 test rider breaks foot

Published: 17 August 2009

Former MotoGP racer David de Gea has suffered a small break in his foot after crashing the new Blusens Honda Moto2 600cc machine in Brno earlier today. The Spaniard had clocked a best time of 2.05.982 when he crashed on his 20th lap in the stadium section of the Czech Republic circuit. The former Team Roberts and WCM rider lay in the gravel trap for several minutes before he was taken away by ambulance to the circuit’s medical centre. The best lap of de Gea would have been good enough for the best time in yesterday’s 250GP race. Reigning world 250GP champion Marco Simoncelli clocked a quickest time of 2.02.330 on his factory Gilera in yesterday’s 250GP in Brno. The new Moto2 class will replace the current two-stroke 250GP world championship in 2010. The Blusens project is one of the most advanced having been track tested for several months.
