Crutchlow and Bradl suffer injuries in final practice

Cal Crutchlow crashed heavily in final practice ahead of the British Grand Prix but it has been confirmed that he has not suffered a fractured ankle as was initially feared.

The Englishman crashed at Chapel, the corner before the long Hanger Straight, after losing the front of his Tech 3 Yamaha. After initial medical checks it was announced that the former World Supersport champion did not suffer any fractures but sprained his left ankle.

The accident will have brought back memories to Crutchlow of last year’s British Grand Prix where he crashed in qualifying and fractured his collarbone and was forced to miss his home race.

The cold track conditions, of just 14C, made the conditions very difficult for the riders and Crutchlow was not alone in crashing.

Reigning Moto2 champion, Stefan Bradl, also crashed during the session and the German suffered a wound to his left ring finger.
