"Scott suffers a career blow after crash at Motorland, Aragon"
Australian World Supersport rider Glenn Scott has suffered a compound fracture to his left tibia and a fracture to his left fibula after a low-side crash, in Free Practice 1 on Friday morning (Spanish time) at Motorland Aragon in Spain that caused him to slide across the track and collide with another rider who was exiting pit lane.
Scott was immediately transported to a hospital in Alcaniz before being transferred to Barcelona where he underwent surgery on the Sunday night, to insert a titanium rod through the middle of his tibia.
Scott is expected to make a full recovery with ongoing physiotherapy to help him along the way, however he will miss the next 2 rounds of the World Supersport Championship, which are held in Assen and Imola. He has set a goal of making it to round 6 in Malaysia in 5 weeks’ time.
Glenn Scott – Gemar Balloons Team Lorini Honda:
“This has definitely been one of the most painful and uncomfortable experiences for me. It was a very unlucky accident with an even more unlucky outcome, but despite everything I am in high spirits. It has now been one week after my operation and I’m feeling more determined to make my goal of Malaysia a reality, as my progress is coming along more quickly than expected. I am 100% focused on getting back on the bike as soon as possible”.
“I would like to send a very special thankyou to all the Motorland Aragon Circuit staff and the Clinica Mobile staff for providing me with the best care possible straight after the accident. I would also like to thank my team, everyone who has sent me well wishes, and a special mention to my beautiful girlfriend for flying all the way from Australia to look after me here in Spain”.
