VETERAN RACER Wataru Yoshikawa is to stand in for injured MotoGP star Valentino Rossi in the Fiat Yamaha squad, the team has announced.

Yoshikawa, 41, a former Japanese Superbike champion, will replace Rossi at this weekend's Dutch TT at Assen.

No stranger to the MotoGP paddock, Yoshikawa has ridden as a wilcard in several previous events, including the 2001 Pacific Grand Prix at Motegi.

So, no Spies, Edwards, Toseland or Crutchlow.
