Britain’s Leon Camier has today been ruled out of the upcoming Donington Park and Laguna Seca WorldSBK round by his continuing shoulder injury.
Camier’s comeback is delayed by a lack of strength in his left shoulder after an Imola crsh, something the Brit saw for himself when he tested with a Supermoto in Andorra to assess his physical condition when riding.
In agreement with the team, he will therefore sit out the back-to-back rounds, with the aim of returning for the Portimao (Portugal) testing session, set to take place on 24-25 August. Camier will not be replaced at the British and American events.
“I’m really disappointed to have to miss two more rounds, despite having definitely made good progress, which my doctor is actually really happy with,” said the former BSB king.
“I’ve now recovered full range of motion and have started to do strength exercises already. Unfortunately, this is where I’m still having some problems.
“I attempted to complete a few laps on a Supermoto but can see that I still don’t have enough strength or stability when braking, as well as still experiencing noticeable pain when doing so.
“As I said, it’s very frustrating, but at least the doctor is confident I will fully recover with no need for surgery. I look forward to being back for the Portimao test in August where we can take time to calmly work on bike development and set-up.”
