Binder declared unfit for Red Bull Spanish GP


Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 rider not cleared for this Sunday’s race, following an injury in qualifying.


Darryn Binder has been ruled out of participating in the Red Bull Spanish GP this Sunday, after doctors decided not to clear him for the fourth race of the season. A crash in qualifying on Saturday had made it unlikely that he would be able to compete, but the South African nevertheless underwent a late fitness test at the Jerez-Angel Nieto Circuit medical centre this morning. The doctors declared the Red Bull KTM Ajo rider unfit to participate, as a result of the dislocated left shoulder, sprained left ankle and bruises he suffered in the crash.

Binder will now begin rehabbing the injuries in order to be as fit as possible for the French GP, which takes place at Le Mans on May 20th.



“We tried right up until the last moment, but this morning the doctors confirmed that I wouldn’t be able to ride. I am pretty sore, especially my right ankle, and when I got on the bike in the garage I also noticed a strange feeling in my shoulder. Now we’ll go back home, do some more scans and start thinking about Le Mans, which will surely go better than this weekend.”
