Season leader Dani Pedrosa fractures collarbone
Spaniard Dani Pedrosa, current leader of the world championships, fractured his collarbone in Saturday's third practice session for the German Grand Prix at Sachsenring.
The Honda MotoGP star, bidding for a fourth straight success at the circuit, injured his collarbone after he failed to negotiate a bend and fell heavily on his shoulder.
He was quickly taken to a mobile clinic to undergo a check-up and it was later confirmed he had suffered a small collarbone fracture, but will try to race if he feels fit enough, organisers have said.
