BROKEN COLLARBONE SIDELINES KK

7th May 2017

As the VOLVO CARS POOLE PIRATES welcome back one rider from injury so they lose the services of another, following a track crash in Poland on Sunday.

Pirates' number one Krzysztof Kasprzak has sustained a broken collarbone with an initial prognosis  that he will be sidelined for four weeks, the news coming just as the Pirates bring back local lad Kyle Newman from a shoulder injury.

Speaking whilst still waiiting to see his doctor in Poland, Kasprzak claimed "I feel so unlucky at the moment, it hasn’t been a good start to my season at all.  My equipment is very good but I have been struggling for the past month to find any form, and now this.”

“ It was a racing accident.  WE were bunched up from the start and I picked up someone’s back wheel as we went into the first corner.  The bike turned right and I hit the fence quite hard.  The x-rays show that I have a broken collar bone and the Doctors tell me that I will be out for maybe 4 weeks.

“ But I hope to get back before then and come back to Poole and start winning races.”

 

For their home meeting on Wednesday the Pirates will use Kenneth Bjerre as a guest to cover for Kasprzak and after that they have no further fixtures until May 29th
