Josh Waters: AMA Superbike Crash Recovery

Superbike News

Josh Waters is making progress in his recovery after a crash at Willow Springs Raceway last week. Rockstar Makita Suzuki looked to Waters, the defending 2009 Australian Superbike Champion, to fill in on the team’s GSX-R1000 as Blake Young recuperates from an injury sustained in June at the Barber test.

Waters will not be ready in time for this weekend’s Mid-Ohio round of the AMA Superbike series, but the outlook is positive for the Laguna Seca Superbike race.

Waters was evaluated yesterday and has made strides toward recovery in the week since the incident, and he will check back in with his doctor again to determine if he’ll be cleared to race at Laguna Seca.

The 23-year-old suffered a concussion and collapsed lung, but the healing process is going very well and the team is hopeful he’ll be able to make his U.S. racing debut before heading back to Australia as he continues defending his title.

“We’re glad that Josh’s recovery has gone so well,” Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Crew Chief Peter Doyle said. “He’s a great guy, a great racer, and we’ll wait to hear if he’ll be able to race Laguna Seca.”
