SACHSENRING, Germany - MotoGP championship leader Dani Pedrosa will miss the German GP after Saturday's crash which left a collarbone with a minor fracture.

The Spaniard was cleared to take part in Sunday's warm-up but felt unwell and withdrew from the race with low blood-pressure, race organisers said.

SECA STILL IN QUESTION

"After a medical check-up on Sunday morning he was cleared to take part in the warm-up but ultimately did not do so due to feeling unwell," the statement said. "Further checks resulted in a decision from the Repsol Honda team and Pedrosa himself to withdraw from the race due to low blood-pressure.

"He will be examined on his return to Barcelona on Monday before discovering early in the week whether or not it will be possible to race at Laguna Seca (US) the following weekend."

World champion Jorge Lorenzo, Pedrosa's nearest challenger, will also miss the race at the Sachsenring. He withdrew on Friday after crashing in practice and further damaging a collarbone already damage in a crash two weeks earlier.

Their withdrawals leave hotshot Marc Marques, on pole for the third time in this his rookie season, with a solid possibility of taking the championship lead.
