Moto2: Takahashi to miss Le Mans
Last year's French 250cc GP winner Yuki Takahashi will not race this weekend at Le Mans
The former Japanese champion underwent an operation on his broken left arm last Thursday, while he has also still not fully recovered from a broken leg he sustained at the end of last season.
Takahashi crashed in qualifying in China and bent a metal plate already inserted in his arm, which he needed after he crashed during testing for the Suzuka eight-hour race last year.
Takahashi will not be replaced this weekend, leaving just Andrea Dovizioso riding the yellow works Honda.
The Italian has admitted that he is "still angry" about Alvaro Bautista's move for second place on the last lap in China.
Takahashi is currently 11th in the 250cc standings after the first four races of the year.
