Kazuki Watanabe set to replace Joan Mir in Misano

Following the injury suffered by Team Suzuki Ecstar’s Joan Mir at the Red Bull Ring on August 21st, the Mallorcan rider was advised to take 15 days’ rest to allow the bone and ligament damage in his right ankle to heal. The factory has now decided that Suzuki stalwart Kazuki Watanabe will jump onboard Mir’s GSX-RR for the race in Italy. Meanwhile, we’re pleased to welcome Kazuki Watanabe to our team, he has a lot of experience with Suzuki and he is putting together a strong season in the All Japan series, he also got 3rd at Suzuka 8 hours just a few weeks ago. The latest tests show bone and ligament damage to the right ankle which has forced the Suzuki rider into 15 days of recovery and rest.
