Lowes able to work on chassis settings despite arm injury

Pata Yamaha’s Alex Lowes has been able to work on chassis and electronic settings during a two-day World Superbike test at Portimao before his team move to Jerez to share track time with the rest of the WSBK field.

Lowes, who had a huge highside at the Spanish circuit last November, struggled a little with his arm but says a couple of days’ rest before action recommences will see him able to continue his test programme.

"It has been nice to get out on the bike, especially after a difficult winter, and we've started to really work. We've had a lot of new parts to test but our main focus has been electronics and trying to find a good chassis setting that suits me.  My shoulder was ok-ish,” said Lowes.


“It was a little better yesterday than today, but I'm hoping a couple of days rest will do it good and I'll be able to ride more properly in Jerez. Thanks to the team, there were some areas that I struggled with the last time I rode the YZF-R1 which were much better this time, so they have worked really hard over the winter, so thanks to them for that! We have had a few hurdles, but it was good, I really enjoyed it and I'm looking forward to getting to Jerez and continuing to work hard."
