Corti to replace Bradl at Sachsenring
6 July 2015 – Stefan Bradl will miss his home race in Germany this weekend as the MotoGP rider continues to recover from breaking his scaphoid at the most recent event in the Netherlands.
Bradl broke the bone after crashing out of the Dutch TT and underwent surgery last week but doctors have advised him to miss the upcoming race at the Sachsenring.
Bradl will be replaced at Forward Racing by Claudio Corti, who finished 19th in the 2013 standings.
"It's really a shame to be forced to miss my home Grand Prix, but doctors have advised me not to rush the recovery in order not to jeopardise the rest of the season," said Bradl.
"My hand is still sore and I will try to take full advantage of the four weeks stop before the race at Indianapolis."
