Leon Camier to regretfully miss the UK and US WSBK rounds

Leon Camier will sit out both his home round, taking place this weekend at Donington Park, and the subsequent US round at Laguna Seca despite having continued to make good progress with his recovery in recent weeks.

Camier’s comeback is essentially delayed by a lack of strength in his left shoulder, something the Brit saw for himself when he tested with a Supermoto in Andorra to assess his physical condition when riding.

In agreement with the team, he will therefore sit out the back-to-back rounds, with the aim of returning for the Portimao (Portugal) testing session, set to take place on 24-25 August. Leon will not be replaced at the British and American events.

 

“I’m really disappointed to have to miss two more rounds, despite having definitely made good progress, which my doctor is actually really happy with. I’ve now recovered full range of motion and have started to do strength exercises already. Unfortunately, this is where I’m still having some problems. I attempted to complete a few laps on a Supermoto but can see that I still don’t have enough strength or stability when braking, as well as still experiencing noticeable pain when doing so. As I said, it’s very frustrating, but at least the doctor is confident I will fully recover with no need for surgery. I look forward to being back for the Portimao test in August where we can take time to calmly work on bike development and set-up”.
