Following a medical check, team owner Daniele Celani and Muggeridge himself have agreed to delay the Australian's return to the series by a few more weeks to allow him to recover from the cracked vertebrae he picked up at Assen, which a CAT scan confirmed on his return from the USA.
Muggas commens: "After the Assen accidents I had an X-ray done at the circuit which didn't reveal any broken bones. So I pretty much ruled it out and got on with preparing myself for the next races. I suffered a lot for the last six weeks and it wasn't until the incident at Salt Lake which literally took my breath away. I decided to get to the bottom of this. So when I returned to Zurich I got an MRI scan which revealed two broken vertebrae’s. I’ve started training again yesterday and I'm really starting to feel human again. It’s disappointing I'll miss Misano and Donington because the speed of the bike is just starting to come. But at least I will be able to re-enter at the Imola test which is a week before Brno, and at least I will ready.
I'll be in Misano, but mainly to get some additional treatments from the clinica mobile and spend some time on the beach with my two boys and Isabelle."
A reappraisal of Muggeridge's condition will be made at the start of July to see if he is in a condition to return for the Brno round on the 26th of the month.
