Six-time Olympic cycling gold medallist Sir Chris Hoy will have the chance to show off his skills on four wheels tomorrow evening after he was drafted in to replace Jorge Lorenzo in the ROC Nations Cup at London's former Olympic Stadium.

Lorenzo suffered second degree burns to his leg as he celebrated winning his third MotoGP World Championship in front of his home fans in Mallorca last week. Sadly the injury means he has now been forced to withdraw from this weekend's Race Of Champions.

Lorenzo said: "I'm really sad that I cannot go to the Race Of Champions this year but during the celebrations in Mallorca I burned my leg on the bike. I really hoped it would heal by now but due to potential complications from sweating inside the overalls, the doctors have forbidden me to do it. I know I would have had great fans supporting me in London so I'm sorry to be missing it. This is a great event and I hope you all enjoy watching all the action. Now I will try as hard as possible to be back at the Race Of Champions next year instead."
