Lowes to ride at Donington WSBK a week after collarbone surgery

Pata Yamaha’s Alex Lowes will ride at the upcoming Donington World Superbike round just a week after having surgery to fix the collarbone he broke at Sepang last weekend.

Lowes went under the knife on Wednesday to plate his left clavicle, broken in two places, following a race-two accident in Malaysia. The Derbu-based rider has been undergoing rehabilitation and physiotherapy in the ensuing days in a bid to compete in next weekend's 23-lap races.

"I'm really looking forward to my home race at Donington as I love riding in front of the British fans. Obviously it's a race against time for me to be fit - the operation went well to fix the collarbone and clean up my damaged fingers so now it's going to be about recovering as much as possible before next week and trying to compete,” he said.


“It means so much to me to try and ride, as a team we have had a slightly difficult start to the new project but we are all giving everything, the last few races have been progressing nicely so I am determined to keep improving for Pata Yamaha, and the whole Crescent team. I want to send a massive thank you as always to all our sponsors and ask them to please get behind us in what will be a difficult home race! I am determined to give it my all and look forward to seeing you all there.”
