I'm sure he'll be back by the time we race.
YART Yamaha's Italian rider Niccolò Canepa has been seriously injured during the winter test in Valencia, Spain. Niccolò Canepa crashed during a test ride at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia, Spain, on the afternoon of February 16, 2021. He broke the back of his left foot and ankle and will undergo surgery at a hospital in Barcelona in the evening of February 17.
However, even if he were to take a seven-week rehabilitation period, he would still be in time for the opening round of the 2021 FIM World Endurance Championship, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, on April 17.
