No fractures for Guintoli after crash

The Frenchman will be fit for the first WSBK at Phillip Island

REIGNING World Superbike Champion Sylvain Guintoli sustained no fractures after he highsided at Turn 1 at Jerez, Spain on Monday during private pre-season testing.

The Frenchman decided to return to the UK for further assessment which included an MRI scan on his neck and back along with further X-rays on his right ankle. No fractures were revealed despite severe bruising and discomfort, but the 32-year-old has now begun physiotherapy and will use of a hyperbaric chamber.

“The back is still quite painful,” said Guintoli. “But, I can put some pressure on the ankle and I’m happy that there are no breaks. The treatment has started and although it will take a while to settle down, I’m confident about being fit and ready to start the season at Phillip Island next month.”

The Pata Honda rider added: “In the end, it was frustrating to miss the test at Jerez, especially because the weather conditions were so good.

"But we have another two-day test in Australia before the first round and I’ve already had a chance to see the work that has been done to the CBR over the winter, so I’m excited and looking forward to the first race.”

Guintoli will be fit to race the first round of the World Superbike Championship at Phillip Island in Australia on 22nd February and is hoping to become the first back-to-back World Superbike title winner since Carl Fogarty's in 1998 and 1999
