Linfoot to miss Brands Hatch and Oulton Park with broken wrist

1 Mins read

Honda Racing’s Dan Linfoot will miss the remainder of this weekend’s MCE British Superbike Championship round at Brands Hatch after breaking his wrist during free practice one this morning.

Linfoot crashed whilst going through Clearways and was seen holding his wrist in the aftermath. He was taken to London’s Kings College Hospital for x-rays, where it was confirmed that his wrist was broken.

The 26-year-old will now undergo surgery at the same hospital in the next few days and will also be absent for the third round of the 2015 BSB Championship at Oulton Park in two weeks time.

The injury is a real shame for Linfoot, who was looking strong following an impressive battle with Shane ‘Shakey’ Byrne last time out at Donington Park. The Honda rider gave it all in race two before eventually having to concede defeat due to a lack of tyre grip.

Despite not getting the race win, Linfoot had shown everybody that he and the returning Honda team could challenge for podiums and race wins.

Fortunately for Linfoot there is a six-week break after Oulton Park before round 4 of the championship at Snetterton, giving him time to recover properly without having to rush back onto the track.

Honda have not yet mentioned anything about a replacement for Linfoot, but there will no doubt be plenty of rumours going around the paddock in the coming days.
