Former Superbike world champion Sylvain Guintoli will make a MotoGP comeback at his home French Grand Prix this month as replacement for injured Suzuki rider Alex Rins, the team said Thursday. Suzuki said the experienced 34-year-old would stand in until Spanish rookie Rins could return.

Rins was ruled out of last month's Grand Prix of the Americas in Texas after crashing heavily in the final practice and fracturing his left wrist.

Guintoli is currently competing in the British Superbike Championship, which does not clash with MotoGP.
