Josh Herrin Injury Update

Moto2 rookie Josh Herrin will make a return to racing at Le Mans this weekend after missing two rounds due to injury.

The reigning AMA SuperBike Champion and only American in the Moto2 ranks missed both the Argentina and Jerez rounds after breaking his collarbone riding supermoto for training purposes.

It was the latest setback of many for Caterham Racing’s Herrin, who crashed out of the first two rounds of the season in first lap incidents.

“I’m pleased to say that my recovery has gone really well,” reported Herrin. “Missing the last two rounds has been frustrating for me but it has allowed my collarbone to heal, as well as giving me the time to build up my training again so that I am in a good condition for Le Mans.”

“Watching the Championship on TV is no fun at all once you have been on track with these guys, so I’m really excited to get back on the bike and go racing again. Le Mans is a new track for me to learn but hopefully I can get up to speed quickly and challenge for the points.”

Team Manager, Johan Stigefelt, had this to say regarding the rookie’s return:  “I’m really happy that Josh is coming back for this GP because he has been out now for two races. He needs to get more mileage on the bike and we need to see if he is 100% fit.

“The track at Le Mans is not too difficult to learn but again it is going to be a new place for Josh, so this will be his focus for the first day. He will need to take it step by step, first of all to see how he feels, but we are all hopeful that he can go for a good result.”
