WSBK Aragon 2013: Camier injures knee, continued participation in doubt

Leon Camier dislocates his left knee in an accident during Q1 at Motorland Aragon, putting his continued participation for the remainder of the weekend in doubt.
Leon Camier could be forced to miss the remainder of the second World Superbike Championship round at Motorland Aragon after injuring his knee in an accident during Q1.

The Fixi Crescent Suzuki rider was flung into a high-side as he rounded the long turn ten left-hander just minutes into the session, an accident that necessitated a red flag period.

Taken to the medical centre, Camier was diagnosed with a left knee dislocation and a wound which required stitches. He has now been taken to the local Alcaniz hospital, where he is undergoing further examination.

Putting Camier in serious doubt to compete for the remainder of this weekend, his potential absence would come as a bitter blow for a rider that had been showing well in the lead up to the accident and was still seventh fastest at the end of the Q1 session despite completing just two flying laps.

Damn shame for Leon. The guy has real pace and is properly brave with it - he puts everything into it. Looks like he was too big for the tiny 'priller, and the Suzi has been short of shove -only starting to get there right at the death of 2012. He's been showing well and I was looking forward to seeing how he could run at Aragon on the Suzuki. I hope he's not too badly bashed about. It'd be good to see him make the grid - but it's be too much to expect 100% out of thje guy after a hit like that - a dislocated & gashed knee must really HURT! I wish him a speedy recovery.
