Fixi Suzuki's Leon Camier has been ruled out of any further action at this weekend's Motorland Aragon World Supebrike round after having surgery on the leg he injured yesterday.
The former BSB champion suffered a big highside through the fast turn ten left-hander and gashed his knee badly. He was taken to Alcaniz hospital and underwent surgery. The Andorran resident will be in a splint for five days but hopes to be back for Assen.
“To be in the hospital and kept away from the race due to a flesh wound is boring and extremely frustrating to say the least. Having said that, I guess I should be thankful that nothing is broken as it was a pretty big impact," said Camier.
"My frustration is made so much worse because the bike was feeling good, the lap-time was coming easily and I know we could have had a good fight this weekend.
“I’ll be doing everything I can to be back at Assen, it all depends on how the surgery heals. I just hope our luck changes and that we can get back out there to give the team a result.”
