Yuki Takahashi will join Moriwaki Althea Honda’s Ryuichi Kiyonari for the upcoming Pata Riviera di Rimini World Superbike round taking place at the Misano World Circuit “Marco Simoncelli” this week end, as he once again stands in for recovering Leon Camier.

Leon’s path to recovery is what is expected for this type of injury and the rider is keen to be back in action as soon as possible. He simply requires a little more time to regain sufficient strength and movement in his left shoulder, injured in a blameless collision with another rider during the Superpole qualifying session at the Italian World Superbike round at Imola one month ago.

In agreement with the team, he will therefore sit out this seventh round of the season with the aim of being back in shape for the British round, set to take place over the weekend of 5-7 July at Donington Park.
