The Brit high sided his GSXR1000 on his fourth lap of Friday’s QP1, coming out of turn 10, and instantly red flagging the session. Leon was received surgery that evening, thus was put out of work for the rest of the weekend.
He returned home to Andorra with a brace around his left knee to aid the recovery and to protect the injury. With just a week and a half to go before the next round at Assen, he now has 40% movement in the knee, meaning that being able to race at the Dutch circuit is a definite possibility.
Docs will have an assessment of the 2009 BSB champions’ knee and make a decision whether he can ride or not, next week. Stay tuned…
