Lorenzo to miss MotoGP after re-injuring collarbone

CRASHES to leading riders Jorge Lorenzo and Dani Pedrosa marred the lead-up to last night's MotoGP in Germany.

Lorenzo, the defending champion, crashed in practice on Friday, bending the plate attached to his already-injured left collarbone and ruling him out until mid-August.

Then on Saturday, series leader Pedrosa fractured his collarbone after a spill in practice - he was rated a 50-50 chance of racing last night.
