Andrea Dovizioso wanted to take part in a motocross race in the Emilia Romagna regional championship, despite Ducati was scared about that. Indeed, the Italian team denied a request from Danilo Petrucci who asked the same, but gave permission to Andrea Dovizioso, but this could cost a lot.
2017, 2018 and 2019 MotoGP vice Champion had a big crash during the race with an immediate suspected broken collarbone. Dovi was immediately taken to a nearby hospital in Forlì to check his conditions and see what happened to his shoulder.
The exams confirmed the first rumors as Andrea Dovizioso has a broken collarbone and for that will be operated this evening trying to be fit as soon as possible. A big trouble for him and Ducati as the season is about to start with a test in Jerez set for 15th July.
Dovizioso is a Title contender for the 2020 MotoGP season but the injury could change a lot the scenario as Andrea will not be at its best even if he will be fit to race for the two opening rounds at Jerez de la Frontera.
