Wrist surgery for Camier

Minor wrist surgery for Leon Camier
Fixi Crescent Suzuki's Leon Camier has undergone wrist surgery in Spain.

The Englishman had a screw removed, which had been inserted following a wrist fracture at the 2010 German WSBK round.

Having been troubled with pain and discomfort when riding over the last six months, Camier was examined by renowned Spanish surgeon Dr. Xavier Mir, who confirmed that the screw needed to be removed to avoid inflammation and movement restriction.

Dr. Mir - responsible for treating many MotoGP stars including world champion Jorge Lorenzo - conducted the operation in Barcelona.

Camier will back at home tomorrow (Saturday) recuperating and building up the strength in his wrist in readiness for the first round of the 2013 season, at Phillip Island on February 22-24.

Um. I hope that works then. Bone inflammation is a real bast ard if it gets a hold. On the up side, he seemed to recover fully after that nasty incident at Cadwell a few years ago so fingers crossed he throws this off too.
