Corser suffers broken arm at Aragon

The BMW rider was collected by the Frenchman after getting crossed up at the end of the long straight on lap one.
Doctors have confirmed that Troy Corser has suffered a broken arm following an accident at the start of the second World Superbike race at Motorland Aragon.

The Australian, who was already carrying a series of injuries after an accident at Misano last week, out-braked himself at the hairpin on the first lap of race two, but as he was attempting to recover to the circuit, he was collected by Maxime Berger, the Frenchman having also run off the circuit.

With Berger striking him directly, Corser experienced a pain in his left arm and was taken to the medical centre, where x-rays confirmed a break in the ulna and radius in his forearm.

However, while the injury is an obvious blow to Corser, who struggled for consistent form on the BMW this year, the former champion insists he is lucky he wasn't more seriously hurt.

“I braked at the end of the back straight, passed two other riders and braked a bit late. I overshot the last corner and went straight for a bit. When I turned in I saw Maxime Berger coming. I could see that his rear wheel was off the ground when he was braking and he just went straight into me.

“I am not blaming him. It was my fault for being off the track. It was just unlucky, really. But I am happy that I only suffered a broken arm, after the injury that I just suffered a week ago. I do not have any bruises, nothing is sore and my neck is fine.”

Corser has three weeks to recover for the next WSBK race to be held at Brno on July 10th.

Man, he really is having a rough season. I like how he's taking it so lightly though. I really hope BMW gets their heads out of their **** and give him a decent package before he retires, he really deserves it.

phil arm..... Easy really, Badovini's team run a Magneti Marelli electronics package, much like the majority of bikes on the grid whereas the works BMW team persist with an electronics package adapted from their car racing projects....they've yet to realise or accept that the 2 wheel & 4 wheel requirements are entirely different. It must be very difficult and definitely painful for Corser & Haslam to have to suffer on such a fickle and unpredictable bike when Badovini appears to have a bike that he ride ride with confidence and to the full extent of his capabilities. I suspect that Badovini would struggle just the same if he were put on the works bike, better off where he is until they see the light.
