Camier hoping to be fit for Assen

Posted: 23 Apr 2013

 

After suffering a severe trauma to his left knee following a crash during the qualifying practice last Friday at Aragon, Camier was ruled out of the Spanish round and unable to race. *link to article we did at the time*. 
Having been discharged from hospital on race day, he travelled to the track to support him team mate Jules Cluzel who put on a great performance and finished 6th and 7th in race one and two respectively on his FIXI Crescent Suzuki machine. 
With just a week to go before the WSBK Championship heads to the Netherlands track of Assen, Leon Camier is working with specialists in his home town of Andorra to attempt to be fit enough to race. 
It is said that he now has 40% full movement in the joint and he is managing to walk without the splint that he was discharged from hospital wearing. Although he still has a brace on the knee to protect it, the injury is improving at a positive rate and the risk of infection has now subsided. So, it looks like things are looking up for the Englishman! 
With the Brit lads, like Chaz Davies of the BMW Motorrad GoldBet SBK Team, heading out and getting podiums, no doubt that Leon will want to be out there doing what he does best and racing!  
The Crescent Suzuki Team, Leon’s Doctor and Leon will make a decision next week as to whether he will race or not. We all have our fingers crossed for a speedy recovery for him
