Camier Assen return a 'possibility'

19 April 2013

Fixi Crescent Suzuki's Leon Camier is battling to regain full fitness in time for the third round of the World Superbike Championship at Assen next weekend.

Camier crashed during practice on the Friday prior to the second round of the series at Aragon in Spain and underwent surgery later that evening in Alcaniz after suffering a wound to his left knee.

The British rider left hospital with a splint in his left to restrict movement and has since began an extensive rehabilitation process with the help of local specialists to speed-up his recovery time.

A statement issued by the team said: “Leon is now walking without the splint – although he has a brace on the knee to protect it – and has about 40% full movement in the joint.

“The injury is improving at a promising rate and the risk of infection has now subsided making the chances of Camier being fit a possibility.

“FIXI Crescent Suzuki, Camier and his doctor will assess the situation about his condition next week, before a decision is made whether he will be able to participate in the Dutch WSBK races at Assen on Sunday, April 28.”
