Melandri Out Of Czech GP

What we feared earlier today has now been confirmed: Marco Melandri will take no further part in the Czech Grand Prix at Brno, as a result of the pain and weakness he is suffering caused by the neck injury he sustained at Laguna Seca. Despite intense treatment, including a series of injections and magnetic therapy, Melandri is still in too much pain to ride due to a herniated disk.

The Italian will now concentrate on recovering in time for the next round at Misano, just 50 miles from his hometown of Ravenna, Italy.
