Columbia’s Yonny Hernandez has been sacked just weeks after putting pen to paper on a 2019 deal after hotel disaster in Magny-Cours.
Yonny Hernandez will no longer ride Lucio Pedercini’s Kawasaki after getting sacked ahead of the brand new Argentina event.
It is believed Yonny Hernandez turned up to the French event last week late and couldn’t get a hotel so decided to return home and was replaced by Superstock racer Jeremy Guarnoni.
This means that Ruiu will get to jump onboard the ZX-10RR for the final 2 rounds in Argentina and Qatar before making his full time debut in Australia in February 2019.
Hernandez has had a disappointing 2018 campaign, sat 18th in the standings with only 28 points to his name.
Magny-Cours was not the first World Superbike race the Collumbian missed, after having Visa issues in May forcing Hernandez to skip the British round and was replaced by British Superbike star Luke Mossey.
