Moto2 points leader Scott Redding will miss the Australian Grand Prix after fracturing his left wrist in a qualifying crash at Phillip Island.


The Marc VDS rider had to be stretchered away from the circuit after losing control of his Suter and bouncing off the top of it halfway through the session.


After undergoing initial treatment at the circuit, Redding " who qualified in 10th " was taken to a Melbourne hospital for further treatment. He will now undergo surgery in Richmond.


His team confirmed the news on its Twitter page, writing: "Scott Redding will undergo surgery on his fractured left wrist at the Epworth Hospital in Richmond tonight. He will not ride tomorrow."


The Briton currently holds a nine-point lead over Pol Espargaro, who will start Sunday's race from pole position.


Though it has already been reduced in length by 50 percent due to tire dramas, the race will still count for full championship points.
