An investigation by race direction showed that Rivas was responsible for a crash with South African rider Steven Odendaal that left both requiring medical attention which ruled them out of the race.

The governing International Motorcycling Federation (FIM) said in a statement after a hearing at the San Marino Grand Prix that Rivas would miss the races in Aragon (Spain), and Malaysia.

Rivas took part in the hearing via telephone and no appeal was lodged.
