Marc VDS rider Miller to miss opening MotoGP pre-season test at Sepang

Marc VDS rider Jack Miller will miss the opening MotoGP pre-season test as he continues to recover from a leg injury.

The Australian fractured the tibia and fibula in his right leg in a motocross training crash in Spain last month.

Despite undergoing successful surgery, his team has confirmed Miller will not be fit to ride at next week’s opening test in Malaysia.

Team-mate Tito Rabat will complete the team’s test programme alone, with Miller expected to return in time for second test at Phillip Island in three weeks time.

“It's unfortunate that Jack is unable to test in Sepang but we are hopeful that he will have recovered sufficiently to join us at Phillip Island for the second of the three pre-season tests,” said team principal Michael Bartholemy.
