Corser unfit for Brno

"We have decided that Troy will definitely not ride at the next round at Brno..."
Factory BMW World Superbike star Troy Corser has been ruled out of the forthcoming Brno round of the 2011 championship.

The Australian veteran suffered fractures of ulna and radius in his left forearm during a crash at Aragón last Sunday. Surgery to help heal the injuries was performed at the Alexandra Hospital in Manchester, England, on Monday evening by surgeon Mike Hayton.

Hayton - a specialist in hand, wrist and elbow injuries - fixed the fractures with two titanium plates and twelve screws, six per bone. The operation went smoothly without any complications.

Former double world champion Corser Troy is now recovering at home, but has now been ruled out of the Czech Republic WSBK round, on July 8-10.

BMW Motorrad Motorsport Director Bernhard Gobmeier is unsure if Corser will be replaced.

“The whole team wishes Troy a speedy recovery and we are happy to hear that the surgery went so well. But we have decided that he will definitely not ride at the next round at Brno as his health and safety have highest priority for us," said Gobmeier.

"We will then see how his recovery progresses and will decide at a later time if he will participate at the British round at Silverstone end of July.

"If we will replace Troy by another rider at Brno is not decided yet. Troy is a part of our BMW family and for us the most important thing is that he recovers well and is back to full fitness as soon as possible.

"We will do anything we can do from our side to support him during his recovery.”

Corser's best finish this season is fifth in race two at Monza. Team-mate Leon Haslam is BMW's top rider in the standings, holding sixth overall with two podiums.
