Leon Camier will be out on track this morning in the opening Free Practice session at Assen after being declared fit to ride. The Fixi Crescent Suzuki rider suffered a serious knee in the Aragon WSB first qualifying session two weeks ago and underwent surgery to repair a deep cut that required internal stitches.
 
Doctors at the onsite Clinica Mobile will asses the 26 year old at the end of the free practice session today before making a call on his participation for the remainder of the weekend.
 
The timing of the injury is a blow to the team given the progress the British run squad have made since the start of 2013. Although still down on top speed and acceleration compared to the factory BMW’s and Aprilia’s the Suzuki is a vastly improved package with it’s impressive handling well suited to the technical Assen circuit.
 
Should Camier be unable to ride after the opening session, Australian Damian Cudlin will replace him for the remainder of the weekend.
