dani pedrosa's participation in his home MotoGP on 5 June in Barcelona is uncertain after tests confirmed a clean break to his collarbone following a crash in Sunday's French Grand Prix, his team said yesterday.

The injury-prone Spanish Repsol Honda rider, third in the world championship standings after four races, was battling for second at Le Mans with Marco Simoncelli when he fell into the gravel after clipping the Italian's back wheel.

Pedrosa would "decide in the next few days if he will undergo surgery to repair the fracture with a new plate or let the bone heal itself without intervention," his team said.
