Sam Lowes has been confirmed with a broken collarbone following the accident that stopped the World Supersport Championship race at Assen, though his team manager Simon Buckmaster is confident he will return for Monza.

The Briton was embroiled in the fight for the lead with Luca Scassa and Chaz Davies when he lost the rear-end of his Parkarlgar Honda on lap six and was pitched into a spectacular high-side.

Landing heavily on his left-side, the impact knocked Lowes unconscious, forcing officials to stop the race and tend to the youngster. Though he came around in the medical centre, a trip to the hospital confirmed concussion and a broken collarbone.

Despite this, Buckmaster believes the Briton will be fit and ready for the fourth round of the season at Monza in three weeks time.

"Sam high sided while going for the race lead and has broken his collarbone and suffered concussion. We will be doing all we can with him to make sure he recovers quickly and fully; we expect him to be racing at Monza. He again showed his undoubted talent and his day will come."

Meanwhile, Alexander Lundh has been diagnosed with a broken wrist and Marko Jerman several contusions following the accident that prompted the second red flag period. Jerman had high-sided out of the final bend, directly in front of Lundh. Lundh was then clipped by another rider, albeit at low speed.
