WORLD SUPERBIKES News : WSS: Checa to miss opening rounds.

Yamaha GMT94 rider David Checa will miss the opening rounds of the 2006 Supersport World Championship after breaking his wrist in a testing accident on Wednesday.

The Spaniard had only completed a few laps at the Albacete circuit when he crashed the YZF-R1 that he is due to race at the Le Mans and Bol d'Or 24 Hours endurance races alongside his Supersport commitments.

"David is very disappointed," commented team owner Christophe Guyot, "He can't understand why he lost the bike, but he has kept his iron will. He knows that, even if he has to miss a few races, there will be a lot more opportunities to prove how well he can race with GMT throughout the season."

With doctors recommending a four-week lay-off, Checa will miss the Qatar and Australian rounds of the Supersport World Championship, due to take place on 25 February and 5 March respectively. The Spaniard, brother of MotoGP star Carlos, is planning to return to the saddle for the Le Mans 24 Hours on 22-23 April but, as this clashes with round three of the Supersport series, his first race outing on the R6 is not expected to be until the Monza race on 7 May.
