YUKIO OUT!

Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Yukio Kagayama will miss tomorrow's races at Phillip Island due to doctor's orders. Yesterday, Yukio crashed in timed qualifying and was taken to The Alfred Hospital in Melbourne with suspected fractures of his left collarbone and three or four ribs and possible damage to his spleen.

But, after further checks at The Alfred, it was found that Yukio had not broken any bones, though there was some damage to one of his lungs. As a precaution the medics there declared Yukio unfit to take part in the races - a decision that was endorsed by the race jury, the FIM and race direction.
