Josh Herrin, the only American in 2014 Moto2, is not having much luck so far in his rookie season.
The reigning AMA SuperBike Champion suffered DNFs in the opening rounds of MotoGP at Phillip Island and Circuit of the Americas in Texas, and now the 23-year old will be forced to miss this weekend’s round in Argentina.
Why? The AirAsia Caterham Moto Racing Suter pilot broke his left collarbone while Supermoto training at home in Georgia. Herin broke his collarbone in two places during the crash, and underwent successful surgery Monday at a hospital in California.
Josh Herrin says: “I was really excited to go to Argentina and I just want to say sorry to the team, sponsors and the fans that I won’t be there.
“I wish the team all the best and I can’t wait to see everyone again and get back on my bike soon.”
Further details will be released when available. As for the AirAsia Caterham Moto Racing team, it will not field a substitute rider for Herrin at Argentina, and will only field its other rider, Johann Zarco.
