Parkes to sub for de Angelis in Valencia finale

Australian rider Broc Parkes will stand in for the injured Alex de Angelis at IodaRacing in the upcoming MotoGP season finale at Valencia.

IodaRacing regular de Angelis has been in recovery ever since a harrowing crash at Motegi, with Australian Damian Cudlin replacing him at Phillip Island and Sepang.

Cudlin's compatriot Parkes, 33, will now take over the ART bike in the final Grand Prix of the season.

Twice runner-up in the Supersport World Championship, Parkes contested his debut season in MotoGP in 2014, scoring nine points for Paul Bird Motorsport.

With PBM exiting MotoGP at the end of that campaign, Parkes switched to British Superbikes in 2015 but only raced the first six rounds of the season.

De Angelis himself, meanwhile, will also be present in the Valencia paddock as he continues his rehabilitation.

West continues with AB

Moto2 race winner Anthony West, 34, will continue to stand in for Karel Abraham in the AB Motoracing Honda.

The Czech squad is yet to score points in the 2015 season.
