Defending champion Jorge Lorenzo was sent to hospital after crashing during practice ahead of Sunday’s Japanese MotoGP Grand Prix, while Honda’s Marc Marquez clocked the fastest lap of the day.


The Yamaha rider was thrown into the air at Turn 2 of the dry and sunny Motegi circuit, where a number of other riders also crashed Friday, including Dani Pedrosa, who broke his collarbone.

Lorenzo was launched off his bike while taking the right turn, flipping him onto gravel where he rolled hard with five minutes left in the 45-minute morning practice session.

The Spaniard was not able to immediately stand but was able to sit on the back of an emergency scooter to go to the circuit’s clinic.
