Assen a doubt for injured Camier

Leon Camier sets his sights on an immediate return to action at Motorland Aragon, but he admits it will depend on how his knee surgery heals.
Leon Camier says he will be doing his utmost to get himself in shape to compete in the third round of the World Superbike Championship at Assen after undergoing surgery on his injured knee.

The Fixi Crescent Suzuki rider suffered a dislocation and wounds to his left knee after a spectacular high-side during Q1 for the second round of the season at Motorland Aragon.

Taken to the local Alcaniz hospital, Camier went under the knife to correct the injury and will now require a splint to be worn for at least five days.

With the next round in the Netherlands less than two weeks' away, Camier admits his participation will be determined by how quickly the surgery heals, but he remains hopeful.

"To be in the hospital and kept away from the race due to a flesh wound is boring and extremely frustrating to say the least,” he said. “Having said that, I guess I should be thankful that nothing is broken as it was a pretty big impact. My frustration is made so much worse because the bike was feeling good, the lap-time was coming easily and I know we could have had a good fight this weekend.

"I'll be doing everything I can to be back at Assen; it all depends on how the surgery heals. I just hope our luck changes and that we can get back out there to give the team a result."
