Aruba Ducati’s Chaz Davies says he isn’t being bothered by the vertebrae he fractured in a crash at the Misano WorldSBK round and, now he has been passed fit by medics it will business at usual at Laguna Seca.
Davies fractured the transverse process of his L3 vertebrae after a fall in race one at Misano left Jonathan Rea nowhere to go but over him. The Welshman has had intense physiotherapy over the past couple of weeks and said he is ready to go.
“I’ve been doing physiotherapy everyday for the past two weeks, and my conditions have constantly improved. I feel generally pretty good, and the back is not bothering me particularly,” said Davies.
“Honestly, I can’t wait to ride again. It’s been a bit frustrating not to be able to train since Misano, but I didn’t want to make anything worse. I want to take advantage of the next few days to wake my body up again. Laguna Seca is a great track, it triggers many a great memories, and its atmosphere is fantastic.
“Maybe I’ll be a bit limited physically, but if we manage to find a comfortable setup that allows the bike to hit the marks without forcing too much we can aim high, so I’m confident.”
