World Supersport: Graeme Gowland back in training after Monza crash

1 of 1

Graeme Gowland is planning to get back into training and out on his motocross bike as soon as possible after receiving confirmation that there is no fracture in his right arm following last weekend’s Monza crash.

The 22-year-old Brit was wiped out at the first corner when he was hit by an out of control Ruggero Scambia riding the SC Caracchi Triumph 675 and was initially diagnosed with a fractured right arm.

After a second round of x-rays, Gowland has now been given the all clear and is focussed on making a full recovery in time for the next round of the World Supersport championship which takes place at Nurburgring in Germany on June 15.

After making an impressive start to the season with strong rides at Qatar, Phillip Island and Valencia, Gowland had a tough time at Assen and Monza and is focussed on securing more point scoring finishes.

Gowland said: “My arm is black and blue, but it’s not broken. At the moment I can’t straighten it but it’s getting better every day.

“I think the injury’s from being hit by Scambia’s bike, not from hitting the ground. It all happened so quickly, but I just remember seeing a blue bike flipping over and then hitting me.

“I’ve got a few weeks until the next race so now I just want to get back to full fitness. I haven’t been home since March so it’s nice to be back.

“Now I just want to get out on my motocross bike, have some fun and do some crazy stuff.”
