Factory Aprilia rider Sylvain Guintoli will attempt to race in round eight of the WSB championship at the Moscow Raceway this weekend, despite suffering a dislocated collarbone last Sunday.

The 31-year-old Frenchman who sits second in the championship standings behind Brit Tom Sykes suffered a bicycle crash and will now be assessed by the Clinica Mobile at the circuit before the opening practice session on Friday morning.

“I have dislocated my collarbone, but after many thoughts, I have taken the decision to ride in Moscow. It is going to be a very hard challenge and a very painful weekend but my aim is to fight for the Championship".

The injury is a bitter blow for Guintoli, who up until the most recent round of the championship at Imola had been leading the standings.
