Injured Sordo forced to miss Rally Sweden

Dani Sordo will be forced to miss the next round of the World Rally Championship due to injury, his Hyundai team said on Thursday.

The Spaniard, who expanded his role with the team to compete in at least 10 rallies this year, sustained injuries when he fell off his mountain bike during training in Spain.

Sordo was diagnosed with two broken ribs and will therefore miss the next round of the WRC in Sweden.

Hayden Paddon will replace him in the event and Sordo is expected to return to action in Rally Mexico.

"First of all we would like to send our best wishes to Dani for a quick recovery and we look forward to seeing him back in the car," said team boss Michel Nandan.

"We have decided that it's best for Dani to miss Sweden in order for him to recover and to be 100% fit for Rally Mexico next month."
