The Monster Yamaha Tech3 Team has to unfortunately announce that Alex Lowes will not take part in today’s Aragon Grand Prix after being deemed unfit due to a fall at turn 16 in yesterday’s morning practice where he injured his left foot. An X-ray was undertaken that revealed that no bones were broken, yet swelling and contusion to his foot meant that he was forced to sit out yesterday afternoon’s action. His injury did not improve overnight and after being re-examined by the medical staff this morning, he has subsequently been declared unfit. The young Briton was standing in for the recuperating Bradley Smith who is recovering from an injury sustained at the Oschersleben 8 Hours event, which caused him to miss the last three rounds. The Monster Yamaha Tech3 Team would like to thank Alex Lowes for his efforts in the brief time together, with the rider producing some eye catching performances in his first appearances on a MotoGP bike. In addition, the whole team would like to wish Lowes the best of luck in his future career.
