McAMS Yamaha’s Jason O’Halloran managed to claim a decent Bennetts British Superbike points haul at Oulton Park yesterday despite riding with a broken arm.
The Australian had kept quiet about the injury all weekend but revealed after the second chequered flag of the day he had fractured his upper humerus in a test at the Cheshire track.
“It’s good to score some points. I was really happy with fourth in race one, but in race two I struggled a bit and ended up seventh,” said O’Halloran.
We had to salvage as many points as we could after not scoring at Silverstone, but it wasn’t easy as unfortunately last week at the test I had a small slip off at Hizzy’s and fractured my right humerus just near my shoulder.
“I haven’t said a lot about it as I wanted to keep my head down and everyone focused on what we were doing, but riding Oulton Park with a slightly broken bone is not ideal.
“We’ve got a few weeks now before Donington, so I’ll keep on with the therapy, get fit and healthy and hopefully be back to full fitness.”
