At the advice of his doctors, Karel Abraham will skip the next three MotoGP races. The Czech MotoGP rider is still dealing with the effects of an injury to his foot suffered at this year’s race in Barcelona. According to specialists, another race right now could lead to permanent consequences. They have therefore recommended that Abraham suspend his season and focus on intensive rehabilitation to heal his injury. For the upcoming race in Motegi, Japan, the Honda team recommended test rider Kousuke Akijoshi as a replacement.
