Alex Lowes won’t take part in the Kawasaki Superbike tests in Jerez because of the injury he got during his Flat Track training. He will be back on the saddle next month
Superbike is back in action at Jerez. Kawasaki is only attending with Jonathan Rea along with MotoGP colleagues. Alex Lowes is missing, as officially communicated by the KRT team. He got injured in recent days while training with the Flat Track bike.
“Alex Lowes injured his shoulder in an accident while training with the Flat Track bike.” said the spokeswoman Eva Blanquez. “Alex was busy with his winter physical training program. The injury is not severe, but the doctors advised him not to force recovery times. He’s been prescribed two to three weeks of rest. It’s just a small setback.” Alex Lowes could get back on the saddle in the next tests that Kawasaki has scheduled at Portimao on March 4-5.
In Andalusia, Rea will try to make up for the time lost last month. In fact, due to bad weather during the tests, he couldn’t ride his bike. The Kawasaki team stayed in Spain to work on a track where the engineers and rider have an enormous amount of references. The goal is to continue the development of the new Ninja, with a deeply revised engine and aerodynamics compared to the previous version.
