Early World Superbike EVO front runner David Salom has suffered a potential set-back ahead of the second round at Motorland Aragon after injuring his hand during testing.

The Spaniard, who finished top of the all-new EVO class during both races at Phillip Island, fell on the opening day of a private WSBK test at Jerez, prompting a visit to the medical centre.

Though KRT rider Salom is confident he hasn't broken any bones, he admits he is suffering from pain in his hand now.

"A very difficult test because I had a crash on the first day, about an hour after I started. I do not think I broke anything but I had a lot of pain in my hand, so now I go to Barcelona to see my specialist, Dr. Mir.

"I have had many broken bones in my hand in the past so the checks I had during the test are inconclusive. As it was raining on the final day of the test I did not ride."

Salom was the only EVO rider present at the test, which also included the factory Kawasaki team, Ducati, Suzuki, Honda and Aprilia.
