EBR’s May targets Aragon return

An injured collarbone will rule Erik Buell Racing's Geoff May out of any testing prior to the next WSBK round at Motorland Aragon.
Geoff May is looking to make his belated World Superbike Championship race debut at Motorland Aragon after it was confirmed he has suffered four fractures to his collarbone.

The American, along with team-mate Aaron Yates, was set to lead Team Hero Erik Buell Racing's much anticipated WSBK debut at Phillip Island last week, but an accident during free practice left him nursing an injured collarbone.

That injury has now been confirmed as four fractures, ruling May out from testing the new 1190 RX prior to the next event in Spain.

Despite this, a statement from the team maintained that May is still expected to race at the Alcaniz circuit on April 12-13.

I am always happy to see new blood in a series and welcome more manufacturers so of course I hate to be the damper in the party. Is it possible EBR had misconceptions of their performance level? It bothers me a bit because they cannot even maintain pace with the EVO's and lapped by the leaders? I am sure this wll make them go back to the drawing board and re-evaluate their power plant but it sucks that they are learning this on the world stage.. one would figure that at a minimum they would be ahead of the EVOs or competing with them Last but not least...I do wish them every bit of luck and future success! I am after all a fan of the underdog

They have the balls to turn up and do their development in front of everybody on the world stage and I admire them for that. KTM still don't want to enter WSBK with their RC8 because they don't have the balls. At least Team Hero EBR show there face even when things don't look that good. I hope their V-twin engine can improve lots so the bike can be more competitive. Best of luck!
