Iker Lecuona will be absent from Sunday’s WorldSBK action at Assen.

Update: Iker Lecuona has been sidelined for Sunday’s double-header following a significant crash on Saturday.

After a heavy crash during FP3 at the Assen WorldSBK round, Iker Lecuona was deemed unfit to participate in Superpole and Race 1.

The incident occurred towards the conclusion of a wet Free Practice 3 session, prompting Lecuona to seek medical assistance to be safely removed from the circuit.

High winds wreaked havoc on Friday’s proceedings, and as rain intensified before FP3, Honda likely saw the challenging conditions as an opportunity to improve their performance.

However, with former MotoGP rider Iker Lecuona declared unfit, the Japanese brand will now rely on Xavi Vierge, Tarran Mackenzie, and Adam Norrodin.

Lecuona initially underwent a medical check-up after suffering a right knee contusion. Despite being reassessed before the Superpole session, he was deemed unfit for Saturday’s action due to knee pain and functional impairment in his right knee.

The team HRC rider’s availability for Sunday’s events will be determined before the warm-up session tomorrow.
