Moriwaki Honda’s Leon Camier was not held back by his shoulder during the opening two WorldSBK free practices at Magny-Cours today but says the real test will come on a fully dry track.
The Andorra resident made his return to action after a four-month layoff but was met with a wet track in both session so his shoulder is still relatively untried on the physical Nevers circuit.
“This morning we rode on a drying track, this afternoon on a wet track, with conditions changing dramatically between the two sessions,” said Camier.
“In the rain the bike is quite friendly to ride, everything is nice and easy to use so we were able to be quite consistent in FP2.
“All in all, it was an “ok” day. I tried not to risk too much and worked to regain my feeling with the bike after four and a half months with no riding.
“My shoulder felt good and didn’t bother me at all, but only by riding in the dry will we see how it really is, because this track is quite physical with a lot of brisk changes of direction.”
