Team Suzuki Press Office – April 19. FIXI Crescent Suzuki’s Leon Camier is battling to regain full fitness ahead of next week’s Assen World Superbike race following the knee surgery he had at Aragon recently.
Camier crashed on the Friday at the Spanish track and was operated on that evening in Alcaniz hospital to repair a severe wound to his left knee. He was discharged from hospital on Sunday afternoon, with his leg in a splint to restrict movement, and immediately returned to the circuit to support team-mate Jules Cluzel and the rest of the squad in the day’s races.
The Englishman returned to his home in Andorra on Sunday and instantly began a thorough and comprehensive rehabilitation process with the help of local specialists to speed-up his recovery time. Camier is now walking without the splint – although he has a brace on the knee to protect it – and has about 40% full movement in the joint. The injury is improving at a promising rate and the risk of infection has now subsided making the chances of Camier being fit a possibility.
FIXI Crescent Suzuki, Camier and his Doctor will assess the situation about his condition next week, before a decision is made whether he will be able to participate in the Dutch WSBK races at Assen on Sunday April 28th.
