WSB: Camier: 'The goal is to get through the whole weekend'

1 of 1

Leon Camier’s main aim for this weekend’s Donington Park round of the Superbike World Championship is to make it to the end of the weekend as he continues to recover from his Aragon injuries.

The Red Bull Honda rider sustained numerous broken ribs in the incident which saw him run over by Jordi Torres’ MV Agusta at the Spanish round last month. He missed the following round at Assen, and, despite trying to ride at Imola two weeks’ ago he was forced to withdraw as he was in too much pain.

Back to try again in front of a home crowd this weekend, Camier admits he’s not completely out of the woods but says he’s better than he was in Imola.  

“I'm looking forward to heading to Donington this weekend for my home race,” he said. “After Imola I took a couple of days off and since then I've been doing a lot of treatment to help in my recovery. Although I'm still in some pain, I feel better in training and my lung capacity has come on quite a lot so I feel that physically I'm in a better place than I was in Imola. I'll only really know how much better my condition is once I get on my Fireblade, but the goal for me and the team is to try and get through the whole race weekend.
