Video WSBKs Niccol Canepa allegedly seen hitting another riders brake lever

Racer facing assault charge over crash caught on CCTV reports Italian bike mag

WSBK’S Niccolò Canepa is facing a criminal charge over this incident caught on CCTV in which he allegedly applies another rider’s front brake, reports Motociclismo.

Canepa, who rides a Ducati Panigale R in World Superbikes for the Althea Racing team, is due to appear in court charged with assault and battery according to the Italian magazine, which has posted the footage on its YouTube channel.

It appears to show a rider hitting the brake lever of a Suzuki GSX-R1000 ridden by Davide Cappato during an amateur practice session at Mugello, Italy, on September 23 2013. Cappatto suffered a broken collarbone in the subsequent crash.

Canepa is due to appear in court in Florence on September 30 according to Motociclismo. It’s understood he denies the charge.

The 27-year-old Italian is currently 22nd in the WSBK championship standings.
