Lecuona ruled unfit for Saturday action following high-speed FP3 crash

Iker Lecuona (Team HRC) won’t take any further part on Saturday at the Pirelli Dutch Round following his Free Practice 3 tumble at the TT Circuit Assen. The #7 crashed on the entry to Turn 16 and was initially taken to the medical centre for a check-up before he was re-assessed before the Tissot Superpole session after he suffered from a right knee contusion. Following his reassessment, Lecuona was declared unfit for Saturday’s action with knee pain and functional impairment on his right knee. His participation for Sunday will be determined ahead of tomorrow’s Warm Up session.

The 2024 season has proven tricky so far for Lecuona and Honda. The one-time podium finisher missed the Australian Round through injury after a crash in the pre-round Official Test, although he was back for Round 2 in Barcelona. He has a best result of 13th this season – in Race 1 at the second round – but did not score points in the Tissot Superpole Race or Race 2 on home soil, after he was taken out by Bradley Ray (Yamaha Motoxracing WorldSBK Team) in the latter.
