Lowes battles through the pain at Aragon tests

Yaknich Motorsport rider Sam Lowes may not have had the best start to his World Supersport testing session in Aragon this week. But in the afternoon on the first day he crashed and hurt his left wrist. After a full examination he returned on the track and ended up getting a solid lap time of 2’01’’7, and resulted in being one of the leaders during the testing in Spain.


Elsewhere Lowes' Russian team-mate Vladimir Leonov worked with electronics and also had tests for the engine, and reached a lap time of 2'03.2.


After the long rehabilitation Dakota Mamola returned, who races in the Yakhnich Motorsport team in European Superstock 600 class. He had very difficult operation on the shoulder and didn't have training from November. During three days in Aragon he completed 150 laps.

Lincolnshire rider Sam Lowes managed to work through the pain, and completed the testing session.

"On Wednesday and Thursday it was very hard to work because I felt the pain in the wrist. But I'm glad that we' be finished our program and convinced the bike is readys," said the Yanich Motorsport rider.
