Camier fighting for fitness ahead of Assen

'The injury is improving at a promising rate and the risk of infection has now subsided making the chances of Leon Camier being fit a possibility' - Fix Crescent Suzuki statement
Fixi Crescent Suzuki's Leon Camier is battling to regain full fitness in time for the third round of the World Superbike Championship at Assen next weekend.

Camier crashed during practice on the Friday prior to the second round of the series at Aragon in Spain and underwent surgery later that evening in Alcaniz after suffering a wound to his left knee.

The British rider left hospital with a splint in his left to restrict movement and has since began an extensive rehabilitation process with the help of local specialists to speed-up his recovery time.

A statement issued by the team said: “Leon is now walking without the splint – although he has a brace on the knee to protect it – and has about 40% full movement in the joint.

“The injury is improving at a promising rate and the risk of infection has now subsided making the chances of Camier being fit a possibility.

“FIXI Crescent Suzuki, Camier and his doctor will assess the situation about his condition next week, before a decision is made whether he will be able to participate in the Dutch WSBK races at Assen on Sunday, April 28.”

Dear Leon No need for you to try to be a hero, all you need to know is that we respect you and that you will be sorely missed at assen, all I know is that you and Clusel will bring Suzuki back into contention. MCP

I agree Hopkins, Vermeulen, Hill. Are all to good of riders to not be racing. what is the status of Hopkins and Vermeulen? are they 100% fit and willing to ride or have they retired? Have always been a big Hooper fan, just thought that I had seen the last of him in top level racing, after all that he has gone through and last year troubles.
