Bastianini goes down: no race for him

First Sprint Race of the MotoGp to forget for Enea Bastianini: the Ducati centaur was immediately hit by Luca Marini, who lost control of the bike and in a slide hit him hard. It was the Romagna rider who got the worst of it, hitting his shoulder in the fall. Bastianini was taken to the hospital for investigations and tests showed a fracture of the right shoulder blade.

The extent of the fracture (compound or compound) and possible surgery must now be evaluated. What is certain is that the Beast will have to miss Sunday’s race and is also at risk for the Argentine Grand Prix, scheduled for next weekend. A bad tegola for Enea and Ducati.
