MotoGP champion Casey Stoner had to sit out the start of pre-season
testing on Tuesday after the Repsol Honda rider pulled his back doing
warm-up exercises at Malaysia's Sepang Circuit.
The Australian, who will be chasing his third title in the top category
this year, received treatment and was hopeful of riding on Wednesday.
"I was stretching this morning for a good 20 minutes preparing to go out
on track for the first time and then all of a sudden my back just
locked up on me," he said in a team statement.
