Fixi Suzuki's Leon Camier will travel to this weekend's Istanbul World Superbike round despite not having recovered full feeling in his arm following his entirely-avoidable crash on Federico Sandi's oil last time out.

Camier struggling with lack of feeling in arm

Both Camier and Jonathan Rea fell on the oil at turn eight after being given no flag warnings and were air-lifted to hospital. Rea suffered a broken femur while Camier, although allowed to return home, thinks he has suffered some nerve damage.

“I’m still a bit beaten-up from the accident and although my neck is feeling a lot better it’s not perfect. My arm and hand are giving me a bit of trouble, because I don’t really have full feeling yet. I think I might have a bit of nerve damage, but I’ve been in the gym and it’s getting better all the time," said Camier.

"It still hurts a bit in certain positions, but I will give it a try on Friday and see how I get on. It should be ok, but until I ride and feel what it’s like, I won’t know for sure. I’ve never been to the Istanbul track before, but I’ve heard good things about it, so I really want to be fit to ride.”
