JG Speedfit Kawasaki’s Luke Mossey is recovering from a fractured vertebrae after a free practice crash at the seventh round of the MCE British Superbike series at Thruxton last weekend

The showdown contender is now aiming for a return as soon as possible and will be looking to start hyperbaric therapy later this week.

Mossey had to sit out the rest of the Thruxton race weekend after his high-speed crash at the finish line. He was taken to Southampton Hospital where he was initially diagnosed with a broken L2 vertebrae.

“I was going well in FP3 and was comfortably sitting in second, I was on another strong lap and as I came out of the final complex my rear wheel went on the grass and the rest is history,” said Mossey from his hospital bed.

“It threw me so high and so far that I didn’t know when I was going to land. When I did I certainly knew about it, I knew something wasn’t right instantly, but the track medics and staff were so good and were with me in seconds. I can’t thank all the staff enough for their prompt assistance and making sure I was OK.”

It is unknown yet if Mossey will be ruled out of the round at Cadwell Park, but for sure he will be back in time for the triple header at Silverstone in September.
