Crescent Suzuki rider Leon Camier is expected to participate in the World Superbike test at Phillip Island shortly before the season opener Feb. 22-24 at the track despite undergoing surgery last Thursday to remove a screw from his wrist.
Dr. Xavier Mir, Euro's orthopedist to the motorcycling world's stars, removed the screw in Barcelona.
The screw was placed into Camier's wrist in 2010 to repair a bone broken in a crash at the Nurburgring. But inflammation and pain from the screw limited the movement of Camier's wrist over the last six months, forcing him to go under the knife.
Camier already is on a quick path to recovery, as he was out walking his dog Friday while being interviewed by British media.
