Kagayama forced to skip Knockhill

A broken hand rules Yukio Kagayama out of the latest BSB event at Knockhill
Worx Crescent Suzuki will be down to one bike for the third time this season after Yukio Kagayama suffered a broken hand in his accident at Mallory Park.

The Japanese rider was making his return to action at the Leicestershire circuit after fracturing his vertebrae in an accident at Oulton Park, but crashed during the opening stages of the first race, ruling him out for the remainder of the weekend.

Breaking a bone in his hand, with the next round at Knockhill occurring just days later, Kagayama took the decision to sit out the event in an effort to recover.

The third event he has been forced to skip, Worx Crescent Suzuki team manager Jack Valentine insists it will remain committed to its rider.

"Yuki being out this weekend is a disappointment but it's vitally important that he rests his hand to be fit again for Snetterton in a fortnight's time. The team remain fully behind Yuki and it's been his bad luck that he's collected two injuries that have stopped his riding for periods of this year.

“We really enjoy working with him and as at Thruxton he's shown he's podium potential all the way, so we look forward to his return. For his part Yuki says he's gutted, he's been wanting to put his championship back on course and he's disappointed he'll not be seeing his fans in Scotland this weekend.”

Another blow for the former World Superbike racer, his score sheet so far this season includes just three results and only one top ten finish.

For the love of God, STOP please! He's had more crashes and broken more bones than Evel Kineval! And often he's jumped further... I like him, I do, but PLEASE just stop whilst you're still in several pieces.
