Fixi Crescent Suzuki's Leon Camier has passed a medical test at Jerez in Spain as he prepares to return to action following injury at the final round of the World Superbike Championship.

The British rider has missed the previous two rounds of the series after a massive spill at Istanbul Park in Turkey, where he broke seven bones in his right foot.

Following surgery, Camier has underwent an extensive recuperation programme to regain fitness with a view to making his comeback in Spain.

Paul Denning, Fixi Crescent Suzuki team manager, said: "As a team, we all have to give Leon huge credit to even be joining us here at Jerez today, let alone passing a fitness test and intending to race.

"His Istanbul injuries were very complex and nearly every specialist said it would be at least six-weeks before he would be able to put any weight on the foot, but now just four-weeks after leaving hospital in Turkey, Leon is ready to race.

"He and his team have made every effort, 24-hours-a-day, to recover this quickly and he's been through a lot to make it happen," he added.

"Whatever results we get on track will be a bonus, just to be here is a huge testament to Leon's commitment."
