Motorcycling: Spies hurt in Indianapolis practice

American Ben Spies was injured during a practice run at Indianapolis Motor Speedway Saturday morning and was expected to withdraw from Sunday's MotoGP race.

After a crash on turn four at the Brickyard, Spies climbed to his feet with help from marshals, pointing to his left shoulder and collarbone.

Race officials said the injury was a shoulder dislocation.

Spies's right shoulder was surgically repaired after a crash at the Grand Prix of Malaysia last October and he was attempting a comeback at Indy after sitting out seven races.
