The Pramac Ducati rider has dislocated his shoulder after a crash while training at a dirt track. The Columbian rider fell heavily on his left shoulder, dislocating it. This crash meant that Hernandez will be missing the first Sepang test schedule in early February on 4th to 7th of Feb, 2015. He will be replaced by the factory Ducati test rider Michele Pirro.

However, the injury on Hernandez's dislocated shoulder were micro fractures  while the tendons and ligaments were undamaged, meaning the Columbian will be able to attend the second Sepang test in all probability. It should be noted that the shoulder is a very complex joint, held together by a complicated network of tendons, cartilage and ligaments which allow it to move freely, but is vulnerable to damage. Such delicate and complex joint if damaged in the connecting tissue of  a shoulder can severely hamper riding ability and even end careers, as it did for Ben Spies.

The press release from Pramac Racing appears below:
