The Kent rider seriously injured his right foot in a crash in Turkey last month, which required surgery to repair seven broken bones and he also had a reaction to drugs adminstered in hospital which left him badly dehydrated. Camier has undergone a comprehensive rehabilitation programme to regain his fitness
“I have made massive progress with the foot and even surprised the doctors, because most of them said I wouldn’t make it back for Jerez. My foot is still a bit swollen, but it is improving all the time and it’s just my general fitness that I need to work on, so although I need to rest to help the recovery I also need to be getting in lots of exercise – which means I’m a bit caught between the two," said Camier.
"I have to get the balance right and I won’t be anywhere near full fitness in Spain, I will be close enough to ride and then we’ll have to see what happens from there. I will need to take a medical at Jerez, but don’t think that will be a problem as I can now put my weight on the foot and I’ve done a bit of trials and enduro riding, so I know it’s working ok. I’ve only tested at Jerez before and I’m really looking forward to going there at the weekend and being involved at the last race of the season.”
