WSS: Pitt escapes injury at Assen

Andrew Pitt has not suffered any broken bones in his arm after it was clipped by Cal Crutchlow's Yamaha during an accident in the latest round at Assen.

Pitt was having a good race having qualified down in tenth position, leading briefly early on before settling in the battle for a podium finish.

However, when Crutchlow and Fabien Foret took each other wide at the hairpin, Pitt's urgent attempt to capitalise up the inside instead saw him low-side off his Ten Kate Honda. Worse was to follow when Crutchlow seemingly ran over Pitt's arm in the aftermath.

Nonetheless, although the impact left Pitt with no feeling in his arm initially, he says he has suffered no broken bones.

“I was still struggling a bit with the front of the bike, though, and I was pushing hard everywhere because I just didn't want to finish third, fourth or fifth. When the Yamahas tangled in front of me and ran wide, I dived underneath – maybe a little too enthusiastically and I lost the front.

“I don't know who ran over my arm, but I lost all feeling in it temporarily and couldn't pick up the bike. There's nothing broken but it'll probably be a little sore tomorrow.”

On the downside, Pitt's title hopes have taken a significant hit, dropping to fifth in the standings, 31 points behind championship leader Cal Crutchlow.
