The Brno World Superbike race could have been the best imaginable weekend in Troy Corser’s BMW riding career, but after a massive Friday crash that included his machine impacting his chest with some force, Corser wisely decided to not ride at Brno.
The intention of Troy and his World SBK factory squad is to have him back in action for real at Silverstone for round 10, on August 1, but before that he is scheduled to have a test at Mugello.
Troy Corser says: "I hope by the end of the week to be able to do some light training for the top half of my body," said the Aussie. "We plan to test at Mugello on Tuesday before Silverstone for a final check to make sure I am physically strong enough."
Corser remembers everything about his heavy WSBK fall, and knows that despite his pain and discomfort he was fortunate to have escaped relatively unhurt.
Corser continued: "I remember everything about the crash, even though it was a pretty heavy one," said Troy. "I highsided and went up in the air as far as I could go whilst still holding on to the bars! All my safety equipment – helmet, boots and gloves all did their job and I probably would’ve walked away from the crash if it hadn’t been for the bike hitting me."
