Alex Rins' long road to recovery continues. In a posting on Social Media, the LCR Honda squad have announced that the Spaniard will miss his home grand prix in Barcelona this weekend. Rins' place is once again to be taken by Iker Lecuona, who replaced the Spaniard at the Red Bull Ring as well.
Rins is still working on a return to fitness after a horrendous crash at Mugello, where he smashed the tibia and fibula in his right leg. When he spoke to the media two weeks ago in Austria, Rins explained he was only able to put around 30kg of weight on the leg, less than half his bodyweight. He was also suffering nerve pain in the leg.
Two weeks on from that, Rins' condition will be better than in Austria, but clearly still not enough to ride in Barcelona. With Misano the week after Barcelona, it seems unlikely that the Spaniard will be ready to return to action by then either.
